'This Must Be The Place'

Pieter Hugo at The Hague Museum of Photography

The South African photographer Pieter Hugo’s monumental photographs, centred around contemporary Africa, are now well known around the world, catalysed by recent awards including the KLM Paul Huf award in 2008 and a nomination for the 2012 the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. The Hague Museum of Photography will be the first museum to exhibit a comprehensive survey of Hugo’s work from 2003-2011. Together with many previously unseen works, the exhibition will include a curated selection of his most well-known series: The Hyena & Other Men, the bizarre Nollywood and the striking Permanent Error. His impressive portraits tell personal stories about recurring themes throughout his oeuvre, namely those people who inhabit the margins of society in sub-Saharan Africa.
