HUGO, whose photo volume 'The Hyena & Other Men' has been released
in four editions, focuses on 'Nollywood', Nigeria's booming film
industry, where Africans produce films for Africans. For that, Pieter
HUGO has built his photographic narrative in his own style, full of
myths and symbols; for his project he asked around 50 actors to recreate
particularly haunting film scenes.
In 'Nollywood', documentation and fiction blur in this way. Pieter HUGO's images play with the perception of the real world: what in reality is surreal seems to be real.
