“We wanted to portray individuals (especially young creatives) that are empowered by being both the business-minded boss and the artist, that everyday are taking on both traditionally feminine and masculine roles, and rocking both. Inspired by the excess and eccentricities of Las Vegas, we decided to capture this theme in character; the show girl and the sleazy club owner all wrapped into one.”
Lissy, a Brooklyn based fine art and music photographer, recently created these images alongside Los Angeles based Dorian Electra, who is an artist/performer writing educational pop music about about the history of sexuality, as well as an extended odyssey on the history of drag.
Taken in a Las Vegas lounge inspired set, she is being depicted in typically “masculine” clothing, typically “feminine” clothing, as well as some images where the line is even more blurred.
