WowBar in Cardiff

For this project I photographed three crossdressers at WowBar in Cardiff which is known largely for it’s entertainment and gay scene. I found the transformation from man to woman fascinating which is achieved through heavy makeup, stockings, dresses and wigs. I focused on Gypsy, Pixie and Bella who have completely different personalities; this is portrayed not only through the way they entertain the audience but through their choices of clothing and the makeup they choose.

Throughout my portraits, I’ve been interested in showing not only how the transformation occurs at the beginning of a night but also the lifestyle these crossdressers live whilst they’re at work.
