The average Beyoncé fan’s repertoire is fairly complete, as far as these things go; on top of the extensive merchandise and the dedicated online community (the Beyhive) there are bookmarked folders full to the brim with Tumblrs and fan-sites and even a dedicated Soundboard. What they don’t have, however, is an art gallery full of the one woman superstar’s family portraits. Or they didn’t, at least. They do now.
The Carter Family Portraits fills the hole admirably; occasionally questionable Photoshop skills combine with a sketchy knowledge of general art history and what can only be an entire whole folder full of Beyoncé’s face, just waiting to be cut out and stuck onto Frida Kahlo’s self-portrait, or Millais’ Ophelia. It’s not perfect, but we’ll take it and Tweet it proudly (in the name of Beysus).
