Drag by Jason Horowitz
by sabine7 / March 15, 2010


When Jason Horowitz uses extreme close-up techniques for his large-scale photos of drag queens, the heavy make-up and intense facial expressions, often cropped, make for work that borders on the abstract. The high gloss that is sometimes interpreted as glamour is like paint on a canvas, but the backdrop is human skin and experience, so the effects of the narrative are much more in-your-face. The drama is evident for all to see. What is real, what is not, and what does it matter?
