Pieter Hugo

Symposium
Datum: 
Saturday 27 march 2010
Tidpunkt: 
16:30

Pieter Hugo will be speaking about his development and personal journey as a photographer- how the nature of his projects have changed, along with the avenues of showing the images.

Pieter Hugo is a South African photographer with a particular fascination for people marginalized from mainstream society. His photographic series and essays stretch, re-interpret and often subvert the traditions of documentary and portrait photography. In the lineage of the social photography of August Sander or Diane Arbus, Hugo's photographs of people are forthright and direct, laying bare the troubled and complex history of Africa against global, social and economic developments. His work is characterized by an unapologetic gaze, of both photographer and subject.

Pieter Hugo has published four monographs.
