"These photographs came about after a friend emailed me an image taken on a cellphone through a car window in Lagos, Nigeria, which depicted a group of men walking down the street with a hyena in chains. A few days later I saw the image reproduced in a South African newspaper with the caption ‘The Streets of Lagos’.
Nigerian newspapers reported that these men were bank robbers, bodyguards, drug dealers, debt collectors. Myths surrounded them. The image captivated me." (Pieter HUGO)

"Der Fotokünstler Pieter HUGO hat mit seinen Portraits über die 'hyena men' aus Nigeria international Aufsehen erregt. Seine Bilder von Männern, die Hyänen in urbaner Umgebung wie Hunde an der Leine führen, haben etwas Archaisches, verstörend Fremdartiges.
Dabei pflegen die 'Gadawan Kura' eine Tradition: Sie sind umherziehende Schausteller, die mit ihren Tieren die Menschen unterhalten wollen und nebenbei traditionelle Medizin verkaufen." (Verlagstext)
