I have a soft spot for transvestites and drag queens since I have appeared on stage twice, both times dressed as a woman. Interesting fact - the word drag comes from as far back as Shakespeare, when actors were invariably men or boys. When a male playing a female enters, the playscript would read ‘drag’ which was short for ‘dressed as girl’
A celebration of the people I meet whilst I’m out on my travels. I love talking to people and I have an urge to document what I see, so the camera is an interesting talking point. In my experience, most people are happy to have their photograph taken once they realise I’m not going to portray them in a negative light. I always carry a small sample book with me (just 36 images) so it’s easy to explain what I’m up to.
