Pierre Dalpé is a Montreal-based photographer whose work is a fusion of analog and digital photography. He writes:

“My work deals with the interconnected relationships between the body, identity, disguise, and performance. For the past fifteen years my main focus has been the production of an on-going photographic series entitled Personae. This series questions the notion of ‘fixed’ identity and explores the idea that we, as individuals, potentially embody a multitude of personae – that identity is fluid, malleable, and not predetermined.

The Personae series involves a collaborative process where I allow my subjects to embody their alter egos through performing in an invented scenario or narrative within the proscenium arch of my camera frame. My intention with this work is to play with and subvert the aesthetics and traditions of documentary photography, as well as aspects of identity, gender, and performance – to coax viewers into believing false truths, leaving the viewer to question everything contained within the image.”

Dalpé received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Studies and Photography from Concordia University (Montreal) in 1993. Since then his work has been published and exhibited in Canada, the United States, Europe, Russia and Mexico. He has received grants from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and from the Canada Council for the Arts. Dalpé has participated in Artist in Residence programs at The Banff Centre, the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture in Dawson City, Yukon, and the Quebec studio in Mexico City. In the summer of 2012, Les Editions Cayenne published a monograph spanning 20 years of Dalpé’s photographic practice, featuring two bodies of work: Clothes Minded and Personae. This monograph was funded with a grant from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. For more information about Pierre Dalpé and his work, please visit his web site here
