My name is Hugo Faz and I am an actor, performance artist and photographer based in São Paulo, Brazil, developing artistic research on the relations between the human body and the social body. You can see my full artistic portfolio in acting, performance and photography here.
Among several projects I’m working on, 100 NUDE Shoots (of Hugo) is a feature photographic project where I’m being portrayed nude in 100 photoshoots produced by me in collaboration with 100 different photographers, each with unique concepts, views and interpretations of the nude. The mission is to “unite” so many different contemporary views and concepts about nudity and help blur the lines that still distinguish, when the human body is portrayed, fine art from amateur, fashion from erotic, artistic from pornographic, and in this process try to convey that being nude is being human — it is the absence of meaning and all meanings at once.
I believe that in order to flourish, we must strip mind and body from repressive bounds and straps and not be afraid to embrace and show who we really are, from the heart to the skin.

Also write me if you are a photographer and would like to partake.
