Hugo by Julio Leão Tempero da Carne Seasoning the Flesh featured photo

32 – “Spice of the Flesh”, by Julio Leão

Julio Leão is a photographer who began his career in acting, pretty much like myself. The interesting bit of this story is that we had been colleagues in the cast of an independent musical in São Paulo called "Noturno" all the way back in 2006, when Julio was still a teenager. More than ten years…Read more 32 – “Spice of the Flesh”, by Julio Leão

Hugo by Alejandro Zenha The Inhabitant

30 – “THE INHABITANT”, by Alejandro Zenha

Alejandro Zenha is an architect, and being a photographer who emerged from the visual arts, he discovered his true artistic vein behind the lens of an objective. We shot at the estúdio NU during its final renovation works, and Alejandro made a collage with street photographs he made of São Paulo. The resulting series of images he called "THE INHABITANT".…Read more 30 – “THE INHABITANT”, by Alejandro Zenha

Hugo by Rony Hernandes Projeto Florescer

27 – by Rony Hernandes

It was even before launching 100 NUDE Shoots that I was enchanted by Rony Hernandes' work with his project "Florescer" ("Blossoming"), and asked him to collaborate. Rony is very young but has a centuries-old sensitivity — and not unlike me, he explores in his work the intersections of visual, body and performative arts. With the…Read more 27 – by Rony Hernandes

Hugo by João Hannuch

9 – by João Hannuch (part 2 of 2)

I was photographed by my friend, actor, director and photographer João Hannuch, in a noir-themed, raw, emotional studio session.

I decided to publish the shoot in two parts. The first part,…Read more 9 – by João Hannuch (part 2 of 2)

“About erections” (outtakes from shoot #1, reinstated)

It took me months since the launch of the Project to decide to publish this series, the last part of the project's first photoshoot, shot by photographer Ricardo Rico.

Hugo and Rodolfo by Gustavo Lopes

Photoshoot #4 was photographed by a friend of me and Rods, the photographer Gustavo Lopes. You'll notice that this is one of the few shoots where we are not fully nude on most photos.
