Michael Alago Booksigning March 19th

New Yorker Michael Alago
left the music business in the summer of 2003 to concentrate on another lifelong passion—photography.

Working initially with a Polaroid camera, Michael embarked on a series of stark male portraits—a series that continues to this day. 

While these images of friends, models and bodybuilders feature the muscular physique, tattoos, and attitude that define this particular male subset, they also bear Alago’s distinctive stamp of irreverent heat. A collection of his work entitled Rough Gods was published in 2005.

His new book coffee-table book, Brutal Truth: Muscular, Tough Machos , just came out!

Michael will do a book signing at Rainbows and Triangles  on 8th ave next Saturday March 19th from 2pm to 5pm..save the date..come on by to say hello and get your book autographed!

Alago has exhibited in New York, Paris, Berlin, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Montreal, and Toronto, and continues to photograph rough gods wherever he may find them. Are you a rough god? Who knows, you could end up in his next book!

If you fit the bill, Michael invites you to contact him through his website Rough Gods.
