Jason Horowitz’s Larger-Than-Life Drag Queens

Picture 21

No, I don’t just admire Jason Horowitz’s photos of renowned New York drag queen, Shi-Queeta Lee for her strikingly similar name to my own. These up close-n-personal, hyper-realistic shots elegantly straddle the realms of glamour and repulsion, real and ideal, portraiture and abstraction. His show opens at Curator’s Office February 20th.

    Actually, the show opens Feb. 20 and runs through March 27. The exhibition will focus on the intense emotional side of the drag queens.

    I love the one of the eyes squeezed shut. i’ve never seen a photograph of just that part of the face before. it’s strangely affecting.
