Liam Sharp, Toronto

Drag torontoby CLARE JORDAN

Liam Sharp splits his time shooting for editorial and commercial clients in Canada and the UK. Born in London, Liam moved to Toronto as a child and has leveraged his dual citizenship to build a career in both places. His new micro-site focuses on his series of drag queens taken backstage at various clubs in the village, during and after drag shows across Toronto. Interestingly enough, Liam has grappled with the release of them: ‘I’m afraid to send them out. I don’t want to be known as the drag queen photographer. The dilemma of a commercial photographer’s struggle, especially in Canada, is that Canadians are so literal. Internationally, the depth and range of what is accepted is so much greater. It’s understood that it’s not me that these pictures represent, rather, an interesting plot that’s graphic and photographic’.
