DOLLYPALOOZA, DOLLY PARTON PERFORMERS, BY DOLLY FAIBYSHEV

Dollypalooza, Dolly Parton Performers, By Dolly Faibyshev

There is a celebration of country singer Dolly Parton in New York called “Dollypalooza”. The performers (both men and women) dress up as Dolly and perform for Dolly Parton fans. They go all out, spending hours getting dolled up for a night that culminates in an orgy of beautiful, unabashed, all-out Dolly Parton-ness. It’s about glamour, femininity, and finding something within yourself to celebrate with everyone.
This series of photographs by photographer Dolly Faibyshev explores our basic freedom of self-expression and identity and issues of idealism and conformity. The unique relationship between what it means to be a fan and be oneself, to find something within your own identity and how it relates to an iconic image.
