Into the Wilds: A Portrait Project

Jeanette Nevarez began photographing Austin-area drag queens in August 2016. “I am fascinated in the transformations that cross dressers undertake,” she says. For Nevarez and her subjects, each portrait is part of a bigger artistic collaboration embracing freedom of expression and the disruption of socially-constructed gender roles. Nevarez says her ultimate goal is to complete 10 portraits and show them in a solo exhibition. The Austin Awesome Foundation is happy to help make this goal a reality.
