Ally Schmaling ’14


Ally Schmaling (they/she) is a photographer and interdisciplinary maximalist. Ally is particularly dedicated to the documentation and elevation of queer and gender-expansive communities in Boston, and recently their portrait work has appeared in the Museum of Fine Art’s 2019 exhibit Gender Bending Fashion. Their painterly work aims to express the most dynamic, unapologetic, and expansive “themness” of their subjects – a coloful celebration of the impossible breadth of what bodies can be.
