Do men get glamorous pedicures? What goddess told you that? Martine Gutierrez, a trans-Latinx photographer, is the queen of glamorous creations that subvert conventional boundaries. Inspired by a Guatemalan goddess, her self-portrait, "Demons, Xochiquetzal 'Flower Quetzal Feather,' pg 85" is in an upcoming show "Be Seen: Portrait Photography Since Stonewall" at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. We push boundaries by painting our toenails for Pride Month, but glamour makes Martine Gutierrez our artist of the week.
