Hugo Hentoff is an American photographer living in Washington DC. He never leaves his camera at home so he is always ready for the perfect shot. The subjects in his photos are usually strangers who have an indescribable and alluring quality to them. After years of street photography and asking people he has never met to take their photo, he has learned that the best photos are always accompanied by a story. Hugo values the opportunity to get to know his subjects. He feels that when he starts to understand them he can more accurately represent who they are through his photography. Although a photograph is only a moment, it can show an entire life. Hugo strives to show the lives of his subjects in a truthful and candid way.
