Leland Bobbé's "Half Drag"

I think this was, officially, the most interesting thing I saw on Facebook today: Leland Bobbé's "Half Drag" photographs. On his blog, Bobbé writes of "Half Drag" that his intention is "to capture both the male and the alter-ego female side of these subjects in one image."(L. Bobbé. "Support Half-Drag." Web. 8 August 2012)

These are really fascinating to me. In addition to how interesting the comparisons are, I found that I usually couldn't "see" the feminine side properly with the masculine side showing -- I had to cover the right to see how the left really looked. I didn't feel like the opposite was true, though. I wonder why that is.

I also found that some of the subjects actually looked *more* masculine on the drag side of the photo. Again, I wonder why that is.

Interesting stuff, and lovely photographs.
