Photographer Gustavo Chams was born in Brazil’s industrial region, from a multicultural and multiethnic family of immigrant and migrant factory workers. He saw at an early age the social division and ethical struggles of a post-colonized country and the difficulties of an industrial city where most factories were closed and its population was left to fend for themselves into new paths and professions.
Cham’s Early works were an exploration of the underground queer teenage culture and his multi-religious upbringing.
Following an early interest in classical music and design, signing his first fashion cover at 19 years old, and his family immigration to Canada, he studied Graphic Design and pursued a career in advertising where he was able to work with his two loves: design and photography.
Gustavo is passionate about representation in the fashion world and often delves into politics, ethics and philosophy.
