About this campaign

Campaign ended unsuccessfully. This product's funding goal was not reached until 24 December 2019.

Author: Tomaso Baldessarini


Identity is a much discussed topic in our society today. We express ourselves visually in ways which are subject to all sorts of prejudices. Dragidentities can operate as a mode of self-realization. But this is about much more than makeup and the right clothes. For queens, their drag persona is a way of life: an abstraction of their own feelings and personality, these fictional identities honestly express each individual’s character. If you look closely, every detail of these images and story reveals a lot about the person behind the character. This involves much more than sexual orientation; a cohesive life story and inner depth are brought to the surface. Without words, these images illustrate their experiences fates and joy. The role enables the real person to appear. These pictures won 6 times at the prestigious PX3 Awards and the International Photography Awards. The release of Queens as a book in 2020 will coincide with exhibitions all over the world. This Calender is supposed to support the Book - Production.
