Queen - 3 by BenHeine Queen - 3 by BenHeine

A drag queen I met in a street of Florence, Italy, a few days ago. He was really expressive and had giant "Queen cards" on his hat.

I just came back from a great 3 days trip in Northern and Central Italy. I visited Venice, Rimini, Florence, Bologna, Forli, Faenza and Cesena. Many thanks to my guides and friends HEESUN and PAOLO. I'll share many artistic photos in the coming weeks.

Admittedly having seen many a rad-looking person, this is officially the coolest guy I've ever seen. Perfect photo, Ben!

Although his costume is fantastic, I would be careful in calling this man a drag queen. He is wearing makeup, but that doesn't make him in drag... I don't know if you spoke with him on the subject, but I would be careful with using a blanket term. To me, he just looks like a vaudevillian.

Fantastic photo, I must say. The narrow framing is perfect to accent just how bright he appears in this drab street, and how large of a character in such a small place. Quite lovely!

While it may limit space in the overall image, I think the goal here was to focus on the drag queen, and not the entire street. But that's just my thought

The nuetral colours in the background make his outfit looks brighter. The way the sun frames his upper body makes it look alomost edited, in a good way! I love this!
