Ball Culture Photography by Elegance Bratton

April 1, 2014 | Marina Galperina

Photographer Elegance Bratton’s new book Bound By Night is “a snapshot of the contemporary House Ballroom scene in America,” of the Femme Queens, Butch Queens, Sex Sirens, and Voguers, their lives and their battles, of the “underground society through which individuals can find family and fame.” Elegance Bratton starts at Vogue Knights in New York City (featured in ANIMAL’s short documentary shot at Hell’s Kitchen Club Escuelita) and on to the North Eastern seaboard, “a journey to the heart of this scene.” (Photos: Elegance Bratton via DAZED)
