For four consecutive years, Dalpé documented Wigstock, capturing the fabulousness of drag and disguise, in all its glorious forms. These years were an important time in LGBTQ history, corresponding with a time when gender boundaries and trans politics were on the verge of a revolution.
Pierre Dalpé is a Montreal-based photographer whose work is a fusion of analog and digital photography. His work explores the interconnected relationships between the body, identity, disguise, and performance. In 1993 he received a B.F.A. in film studies and photography from Concordia University, in Montreal. Since graduating, Dalpé’s work has been exhibited in Canada, the United States, Russia, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and Australia. His photographs are part of several private collections and have been published in a variety of journals, magazines, newspapers and periodicals. In 2012, Les Editions Cayenne published his monograph, entitled 'Personae', spanning 20 years of Dalpé's photographic practice.
