Deconstructing Masculinity

PRESENTED ON NOV 22, 2018
IN WINNIPEG @ VOL 36

With his work, photographer Ally Gonzalo strives to bring home the idea that men of all shapes, sizes, and colours can be attractive. In photographing his subjects, he endeavours to convey a body-positive message and capture the beauty of those who don't fit within the non-conventional standard. For his talk at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 36, Ally shared how he got his start in photography, how his identity and self-esteem shaped his perspective, and how he decided to take on the challenge of redefining masculinity in his work as a queer person of colour. 

Ally's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 36, on November 22 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Body Language

BY GAETAN SCHMID

Body language is fascinating because Gaetan Schmid believes our bodies never lie. We might use words to say something nice to someone but simultaneously our body is saying: “What an idiot!”  He is passionate about exploring these hidden truths - so revealing about ourselves, and then sharing them"
