" My work explores the interconnected relationships between the body, identity, disguise, and performance "


Pierre Dalpé is a Montreal-based photographer whose work is a fusion of analog and digital photography. For the past decade his main focus has been the production of an on-going series of portraits, some digitally-manipulated and some not, entitled Personae. His Personae series questions the notion of a predetermined or ‘fixed’ identity and explores the idea that individuals potentially embody a multitude of personae.

Dalpé received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Studies and Photography from Concordia University in 1993. 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. He 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 and 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.
