Hick Duarte is a Brazilian photographer and director based in São Paulo. He shot his first parties and music concerts at 17, willing to create the images that would illustrate his own words when he worked covering music festivals in his hometown. By studying Social Communication with a degree in Journalism, Hick developed a documentary yet poetic approach to portraiture, focusing his work on fashion and youth culture.

His work have already been featured in i-D, Dazed, GQ America, GQ Spain, WMag, Elle Brasil, Vogue Brasil, Vogue Portugal, Vogue Philippines and The New York Times Style Magazine; among his clients are adidas, Calvin Klein, Chanel Beauty, H&M, Carolina Herrera, Netflix, Puma, Hering, Natura, MAC Cosmetics, Heineken, Chandon and Marina Abramovic Institute.

In July 2017, Hick's largest exhibition Gaps took place in New York inside Bonde, a conference dedicated to Brazilian design. For two consecutive years, 2018 and 2019, Hick was featured on The Fashion Awards' NEW WAVE: Creatives list, held by the British Fashion Council. In 2020, the four covers he shot for Vogue Brasil (September Issue) dedicated to the Amazon Rainforest activists won the Green Award, a global initiative from Condé Nast that highlights stories about sustainability around the world. In 2021, the music video Água de Flor he directed for the Brazilian artist Trevo won the award for Best Longform Video at MVF – Music Video Festival.

In 2020 he founded and since then he runs Fenda, a multidisciplinary platform to support young Brazilian artists based on mentoring, collaborative projects and art residency.
