Fall of 2012 marked the last time that I shot anything other than a male subject. Finding inspiration with a return to collaborating with dragqueens last Spring, I spent three months revisiting my archives to make a body of work of individually considered, oil painted Polaroids.
Captured largely between 2009 and 2012, the painted Polaroids feature friends and collaborators who have since gone on to incredible success with the luminous rise of RuPaul's DragRace. Sharon Needles, Alaska Thunderfuck, Detox Icunt, Raja Gemini, Trixie Mattel, Violet Chacki, and Willam Belli are just a few of the subjects featured in the book and now relative household names.
