The Outsiders: Antony Hegarty pays tribute to Peter Hujar

Photographer Peter Hujar spent his career capturing powerful portraits of personalities famous and unknown. Many of his works revolve around an innate sense of mortality and fleeting time which reflects in his careful, personal treatment of his subjects.

He took pictures of outsiders from an insider’s perspective. The experience of extreme alienation and private soulfulness is what Hujar seems to have shared with his subjects, and elevated in his portraits of them. –Antony Hegarty
