Ugo is from Rome, Italy. When I stumbled across his pictures on Instagram, I was immediately caught by the colours, the portraits, and the homoerotic aura. The ones he shot for The Wasted Hour are no exception.
From our first contact back in February until now we've exchanged a lot of emails and texts, getting to know each other. Right now, Ugo's thinking about leaving Rome.

So now you found the time to get away
But you don't know what to do about yourself
I see it but I look the other way
And I'm feeling like I'm falling out again

On the outside, on the outside
On the outside, change your mind
I'm feeling nothing, I'm feeling nothing
On the outside, change your mind
I'm lost in
I'm lost in
I'm lost in

So now you turn to me to get away
But you haven't figured out just what you want
You see those angels in the alleyway
Were they coming here to save me from myself?

On the outside, on the outside
On the outside, change your mind
I'm feeling nothing, I'm feeling nothing
On the outside, change your mind

I'm lost in the sugar
Found out you're the only one
I'm lost in the sugar
Found out you're the only one
Go on now forever
Found out you're the only one

Thank you, Ugo, for being part of THE WASTED HOUR.
