I photographed portraits of some dreamy drag queens and their mothers for Refinery 29, and Amelia Abraham wrote a brilliant piece interviewing everyone – read the article here.
“…Finn’s drag look is a unique one: he plays with porcelain makeup, coiffed hair and corsets, and “things that aren’t necessarily gendered, like kilts, berets or a ruff.” Unlike Amrou, Finn is able to talk to his mum, Jennifer, about his love of drag. She doesn’t see it as Finn “dressing up as a woman, per se – more as a work of art.”
Jennifer says Finn’s always been extreme, always questioning, but at the same time unquestionably the same person: “One who always challenges me and makes me consider my own perspective”, she smiles. And does he take any cues from her? “I think we share some traits,” laughs Jennifer. “A love of dramatic hair maybe… and I am an aficionado of all things cosmetic! But really, I think Finn is entirely his own creation – as are his two brothers and sister – and I just love that about all of them.”
