A collaborative project by Pieter Hugo and the now defunct label Hood by Air. In early 2016, Pieter Hugo travelled to Jamaica to shoot a series of provocative portraits on male porn stars and Gully Queens, wearing seminal pieces of the Hood by Air archive. The book includes an in-conversation essay between Hugo and Carlos Nazario, collaborator on the project and a long time collaborator and friend of Hood by Air’s founder Shayne Oliver. They discuss the challenges they faced photographing such sexually ambiguous characters in a country where homosexuality is still illegal.
