Walk on the Wild Side is a fitting description of this collection of provocative photographs of cross-dressers, drag artists and transexuals by London photographer, Jeanette Jones.

Here is a look into a world far removed from ordinary life. It is a world where some of the most beautiful women are men, and they wear an extravagant collection of outfits as they dress up, parade and live out their fantasies.

When" Amber Rose" introduced Jones to London's Madame Jo-Jo's, the legendary drag nightclub, she quickly won the trust of the regulars. She photographed the Barbettes, the nightclub's "Girls" -- a first in photographic history.

Jones describes how she was educated into this life-style; "Ambrose ('Amber Rose') explained the meaning of the different sides of drag. Cross-dressers aren't necessarily gay - women wear trousers, so why can't men wear skirts? Transvestites like wearing women's clothes for sexual pleasure. Transsexuals are men who have had sex-change surgery and lead lives as women - or vice versa."

Jones has become a trusted and respected among transsexuals and cross-dressers, and they have taken her into their confidence. In her role as reportage photographer, she carries her camera to record all main drag events.

About the Author:

Jeanette Jones was once just an average housewife who took evening classes to learn how to take pictures. That was before she discovered, and was discovered by, the world of drag artists. Her fascination stems from the day she attended a party with her husband and was asked by a man if he could try on her jacket.

Now her talents are constantly in demand as a portrait, reportage and advertising photographer. When she isn't producing her remarkable photographs, she lives just outside London with her husband and children.
