I’ve been a fan of Hugo Fernandes’ photography for a while now and was hoping I’d have the chance to see either him or his work in person at the GLAAD Auction last fall. That didn’t pan out, but serendipitously I have been able to have a couple of email exchanges with Hugo. I’m always intimidated when I start a conversation with a photographer that I admire this much, and yet I found Hugo to be easy to talk with and kind.
On his website, his work is divided into two categories, “Intimate Strangers” and “Untitled Encounters.” Photos from both are below. I find Hugo’s work to be lush, gorgeous, personal, and sexy.
