Fashioned through an experimental process, photographic prints made by Hugo Hentoff are imbued with contradictions. Intricately detailed hair of the portrayed subjects stands in opposition to their blurry, hard-to-recognize faces, allowing for free interpretation of their physical characteristics, as well as their true character. Still, these photographic pieces are made as portraits, encapsulating more than mere physicality of the models. Hugo Hentoff is the Silver Artist of the ArtAscent “Portraits” call for artists. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal “Portraits” issue.

I honestly believe ArtAscent is among the best of the quality arts and literary magazines available today.

Each time I read through an issue of ArtAscent, my mind opens up a bit more as to what art can be, what writing can be, and to how the two can enter into a dialogue together. To explore the different ways reader/writer and artist/viewer can converse with each other.
