Description

This is a collection of portraits of the artists and his friends, all of whom are South Africans. Hugo’s portraits are all in black and white and have all been manipulated such that colour channels are changed to put emphasis on the pigmentation of the subject.

This ultimately makes the subjects look as though they’ve been marked by sunburn, with various blemishes all across their faces. These portraits go a long way to challenge the conventional perceptions of beauty and the culture of airbrushing to achieve said aesthetic appeal. The images also present an otherwise uncomfortable argument against the inconsistencies of racial distinction.
