Callie Lugosi (they/them) is a lens-based artist and journalist from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Treaty 1 territory, the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene peoples, and birthplace of the Metis Nation.
Lugosi makes use of analog and oft-times antiquated technology to create photographs. The heart of their practice centers around documenting, archiving, and carving out space for queerness in the local historical canon. In addition to a vested interest in the past, they are beginning to explore the concepts of queer futurism, alternate realities, and science fiction.
Lugosi offers portrait sessions to members of the LGBT2SQIA+ community on a sliding pay scale (with no one being turned away for lack of funds). Those in need of headshots whether, personal or professional, or those with interest in exploring boudoir in a safe body/gender/sexuality affirming way can get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
