Collection Description

Biographical Note

Hugo Fernandes was born in New York in 1985. He received a BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in 2007.

Scope and Content Note

This collection includes 24”x36” chromogenic color photographic prints from Fernandes’s portrait series Intimate Strangers II on 30”x40” photographic paper. This series riffs on internet and app-based gay hookup culture: the artist initiated meetings with men online to set up photo shoots that explore the same interplay of anonymity, intimacy, and sexuality that other anonymous and semi-anonymous hookups navigate.
