Michael Alago

Passionate about music, art and literature, photographer Michael Alago is the quintessential New Yorker with an “only in New York” career. From signing metal gods Metallica to shooting some of the hottest roughnecks on the planet, Alago’s story is driven by creativity, instinct and guts.

He worked with artists as different as White Zombie, Alan Vega, Johnny Rotten, Michael Feistein, Cyndi Lauper and Nina Simone.

In 2003 Alago decided to focus on his parallel lifelong passion–photography. Equipped with an eye for muscle-bound, tattooed roughnecks, Alago shoots friends, models and bodybuilders in various settings, stages of undress and arousal. Erotically-charged and testosterone-fueled, Alago’s photographs are recognized by fans worldwide.

His first photo book “Rough Gods” was published in 2005. “Night Blooming Jasmine Will Never Smell The Same,” a collaborative book of poems, observations and rants with Life of Agony singer Keith Caputo was published in 2010. “Brutal Truth” and “Beautiful Imperfections” are his latest books with Bruno Gmünder.
