By Christopher Harrity
For Dominican men, “Hermoso” is innate, part of their DNA. Photographs by Ernest Montgomery. Read more below.
For many years, Ernest Montgomery has photographed men of the Dominican Republic. His first photo book, Dominicanos, is a best seller. In 2017 he followed with a second volume of his most erotic works: Hermoso.
The title of the book alludes to what awaits us inside: the most beautiful men of the Dominican Republic, photographed by an outstanding artist.
“Hermoso” is a Spanish word meaning handsome, beautiful. It is an aesthetic one embodies and possesses naturally. For Dominican men, it is innate, part of their DNA. In this new project, Hermoso, Ernest Montgomery captures Dominican men in intimate and seductive scenes throughout Santo Domingo, Bonao, Barahona, Las Terrenas, Moca, Haina, San Cristobal, and San Juan de Maguana. — From the foreword of Hermoso by Terrence Dean
