Drag Queen Cowboys by Jane Hilton is a collaboration with a vibrant community of performers based in Las Vegas. The portraits were taken just before the pandemic reached the US in February 2020. They are set in Nevada, inspired by the locations and displacement of characters in John Huston’s film The Misfits (1961) with Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable. All drag queens chose and painstakingly made their own ‘western’ outfits including accessories and wigs and applying their own make-up. Photo London presents its sixth edition at Somerset House from 9-12 September.
