Pieter Hugo: New Book, New WorkJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 29 Jun 2010
Hugo just held his first solo exhibition in France, and took time to sign copies of his books The Hyena and Other Men as well as Nollywood [see images from this series here], while also exhibiting his series Boy Scouts, Orlando Pirates, and Catch Congolese Wrestlers.
Pieter Hugo portraits three different communities, each characterized by distinct outfits and accessories. These unique dress codes and props are used to express aspects of personality, the belonging to a group or to a value system.
Runs through July 3rd, 2010 at colette.
