This project was originally published in print in 2000, in Metrosource Magazine. It was nominated for an Alfred Eisenstaedt Award for Magazine Photography (in the portrait/essay category) and self-published by Blurb in 2008 http://www.blurb.com/b/281595-pocketbook-of-drag-queens
It was first published online as a photo essay in Visura Magazine. http://www.visuramagazine.com/spotlight-ellen-wallenstein#.UPgMgGdZ98F (Thank you Graham Letorney.)
I'm showing it again here because I think it is still relevant and interesting, twenty years later.
