In Feel Royal, Rachelle reconstructs the text found on clothing worn by celebrities in paparazzi photographs. Through a process that is both manipulation of and collaboration with the featured celebrities, the project explores the reflective and refractive qualities of internet-age fan culture as an outlet for obsession. The chapbook was published in a limited print run of 150 copies by b l u s h in October of 2019.
