About this work

Description

The actor in drag is naked, sitting upright, wearing elbow-length gloves and heels. He is side-on and turns his head to face the viewer, gazing downwards, with big blonde hair and make-up. A risqué shot of drag performer Peter Love, posed near-naked. Hair, make-up and general styling of the shot indicate a date of 1945-1950. The shot is similar to heterosexual pornography of the period, with 'fetish' accessories in the way of elbow-length black lace gloves and towering spiky heels (James Gardiner)
