— Pieter Hugo | The Hyena & Other Men

Many myths surround the Hyena Men who haunt the peripheries of Nigeria’s cities.

Accompanied by hyenas, rock pythons and baboons, these men earn a living by performing before crowds and selling traditional medicines.

 

Pieter Hugo’s extraordinary portraits of their minimal existence reveals an uncanny world of complexity – co-dependencey and submission, wildness and domesticity, tradition and modernity are constantly subverted.
