NY photographer Leland Bobbé shares the flip side of female illusionist

A sample of the work by Leland Bobbé

There’s an old saying that states “a little powder and paint will make a woman what she ain’t.” But for those skilled in the art of female impersonation, that skill must be expanded to create an illusion that shocks and surprises their audience. One of the premier cities for female impersonation, New York City, is home to some of the most “beautiful” drag queens in the world. And now, thanks to renowned photographer Leland Bobbé, has taken a single photograph from his blog, and expanded it into a series of images showing some amazing transformations that must be seen to be believed.

What’s most amazing about the images is that they are not shot as single images, as they appear to be. The photographer has taken two separate images and combined them to create these astounding images.

Follow the link to see a gallery of images from Bobbé’s work that have been featured in Italian Vogue and Refinery 29, just to name a few.
