    This image is from a larger documentary series on a local drag queen group. As kids we dress up and pretend play. Drag queens not only play by transforming themselves in to a character that they invent but also have a ton of fun in front of mirrors. The mirror is a form of play to them as they complete their transformations and slowly immerse themselves in to their characters.

    Pippa, you perfectly caught this moment. I love the layers and framing between hair and reflections in the mirror. It gives us an opportunity to see so many bits of this person in one frame. What really gets me is seeing that one intense eye looking in the mirror. I absolutely love this.
