Drags is a beautifully designed coffee table book, and a photo series documenting the drag queens and kings of New York City, shot by director/photographer Gregory Kramer. Presented in the style of classic fashion portraiture, the collection features legends - and up-and-coming legends - in glamorous black and white, full-length studio portraits. Inspired by Irving Penn, each photo brings out the spirit of the performer through subtle pose, gesture and facial expression. Included in the volume are five stories written by vital pillars of the scene. Charles Busch writes about how it feels to be in drag and his utmost respect for female role models, Sasha Velour speaks about the magic and transformative power of drag as an art form, Linda Simpson comments on the generational shift in the community, Goldie Peacock presents a distinct point of view from a drag king, while Sweetie pays homage to the queens who've come before.

MEDIA REVIEWS
While we can never have enough Mama Ru, we are also aware that the world of drag deserves endless appreciation... In Drags, [Gregory]Kramer called upon New York's drag community to come and pose in front of his camera.--Dazed
The result is Drags (KMW Studio), a sumptuous monograph with 80s black and white portraits that will leave you breathless as you take in the full glamour and glory of New York's finest.--Dazed & Confused Magazine
Drag is like an act of magic, a way of casting spells. If a spell is meant to change the living world through the constitutive powers of language, then I think drag is meant to change it through fashion, gesture, and effect.--CNN Style
Offering a rare insight into how the flamboyantly-dressed performers behind the wigs, heels and make-up really feel on stage, Gregory Kramer's book also features essays from men and women who've been working New York's hard-to-please crowds for decades.--Daily Mail
