Schael Marcéus is a Haitian Canadian photographer and filmmaker currently living and working in Montreal. Deeply rooted in the human experience and in his own development in a social context, Marcéus’ work weaves between portraiture, documentary, and fashion as it platforms the stories of unheard voices.
Recurring themes center notions of blackness and home, conceptualized through sexual and/or gender identities. His body of work is itself constructed as a kind of visual narrative; each piece teeming with embedded meaning.
Marcéus’ work has been featured in multiple exhibitions in Montreal, including the Montreal Fine Arts Museum; and his activism led him to be a speaker on various panels regarding the realities of being a black artist in today’s society.
