PIETER HUGO »THE HYENA & OTHER MEN« – selected by RIXON REED

»This fascinating and troubling book describes the macho domination of Nigerian males over extraordinarily powerful African animals. Pieter Hugo couldn’t have captured the African male bravado in any better way. His simple technique of rendering the background of his pictures monochromatically, while muting the colors of the portraits themselves, produces a work that has the subtlety of fine portrait painting, while revealing a realistic, documentary yet entertaining view of the African street performer trade. The book itself, through its straightforward design, lets the work speak for itself without getting in the way.«
