Damien Frost’s “Night Flowers” Features Whimsical Portraits of Queer Nightlife

“Night Flowers” is a photography series by Damien Frost documenting London’s alternative nightlife scenes. The protagonists of the series are drag kings and queens, club kids, goths, queer, transgender, fetishists, as well as cabaret and burlesque performers with the central theme focused on showcasing how they “bloom” after midnight.

The project began when Frost challenged himself to take a portrait a day. Each night, he walked the streets of London’s colorful Soho district hoping to catch a glimpse of the strange and colorful “Night Flowers.” Relying on the serendipity of chance encounters, Frost met most of his series’ protagonists on the street or in a club. The result is authentic and arresting portraits of counterculture’s most eccentric members who transform themselves into ephemeral works of art. The personalities that come through in his portraits are genderfluid, original, and powerful – featuring some of the most vivid creative expressions, fantastic styling, and fanciful make-up.

Due to Frost’s background in opera and theater, he understood the intricate preparation of his Night Flowers’ artful looks and captured the complexity and drama in each and every portrait. With such a deep appreciation for this art form, Frost was able to bring the beauty and talent of this scarcely accessible community to the wider public.
