Description

Drags is a beautifully designed coffee table book, and a photo series documenting the drag queens and kings of New York City, shot by director/photographer Gregory Kramer. Presented in the style of classic fashion portraiture, the collection features legends - and up-and-coming legends - in glamorous black and white, full-length studio portraits. Inspired by Irving Penn, each photo brings out the spirit of the performer through subtle pose, gesture and facial expression. Included in the volume are five stories written by vital pillars of the scene. Charles Busch writes about how it feels to be in drag and his utmost respect for female role models, Sasha Velour speaks about the magic and transformative power of drag as an art form, Linda Simpson comments on the generational shift in the community, Goldie Peacock presents a distinct point of view from a drag king, while Sweetie pays homage to the queens who've come before.
