This series entitled Royalty features drag queens and kings in southern California. The images evoke ideas about identity, power, representation, gender, fame, beauty, aging and fashion. Images from the Royalty series are straightforward portraits that challenge the gender lines fostered in our current culture. The notion of a self-appointed king or queen explores concepts of privilege, hierarchy and self-empowerment.
