Pieter Hugo – Corporeality

Share:

What does it mean to live in cities today? This is a central question in Pieter Hugo's work. Until 11 April, the Priska Pasquer Gallery is hosting the photographer's first solo exhibition in Germany, comprising of selected works from his most important series. These include The Hyena and Other Men (2007), Permanent Error (2009–2010) and There Is A Place in Hell for Me and My Friends (2011–2012).

Powerful portraits
The South African photography artist (born 1976) has travelled through Africa since his early twenties – initially as a photojournalist for publications such as the New York Times. Above all, he captures the physical presence of people within their respective, often conflict-ridden cultures. His haunting portraits come together to form a social tableau, a representation of the radical and critical realities of contemporary life – not just in the cities of Africa.
