My friend Sarah Victoria and me have doing pictures ever since we met each other in the UPR during our college years. Recently she started doing shows again as her drag persona Victoria Expensive. And I decided I wanted to capture Victoria’s essence. Victoria Expensive is half french, half Japanese born in a US military base and all about glamour, couture and death. We decided to shoot in an abandoned hotel in Salinas, the reasoning behind the location is the stigma behind “bollos” which is what girl drags are called. Being a girl drag can be very isolating.
The photos were published in Polyester Zine:
god is real
SHE GOT HER SHIT BACK TOGETHER
Not about to praise this nasty ass yeast infected bitch bc it just means she got bored of the ratchetmess black caricature gimmick she shouldnt have done in the first place
exactly what I thought when I heard her say she ‘retired the twerk’
Being black wasn’t profitable enough for her.
