When it comes to capturing the dramatic and colorful beauty of the drag community, look no further than Australian photographer Aaron Walker and his dazzling series of before-and-after drag transformation photos. Walker captures the diversely unique beauty of the community via his ongoing project #Dragformation, which he's shared on his Instagram page. In a way similar to remarkable makeup transformation photos, Walker's drag photos depict stunning changes you never saw coming. In addition to his photos of many famous drag queens, his page features other gorgeous photographs ranging from brilliant landscapes to graceful photos of circus performers.
Here you'll find pieces from his #Dragformation project featuring pictures of drag queens' before-and-after makeup. As you'll see, these drag queen transformation pictures show the incredible process drag Queens (and Kings!) go through in order to transform themselves through carefully cultivated makeup, hair, and clothing. Whether you're a member of the drag community yourself, an admirer, or perhaps always wondered what drag queens look like out of makeup, get ready to feast your eyes on a group of skilled individuals who reflect the skill and mastery of self-transformation in a creative, bold, and beautiful way.
