Pieter Hugo

I first saw Pieter Hugo's "The Hyena and Other men" series and it immediately caught my attention. The relationship between this creature and these men just seemed incredible. I later saw his "Nollywood" series in the New Yorker and was further intrigued to know more about this photographer. Though there seems to be a bit a controversy whether his work is exploiting these people or pointing out the general public's warped stereotypes of Africa. Either way the imagery definitely captures your attention.
