This exhibition is the first major monographic show of South-African photographer Pieter Hugo, born in 1976. In addition to a large number of unrealesed works, the exhibition  also feature very well known series such as The Hyena & other Men, the strange Nollywood, and the Permament Error. As always, his portraits tell the story of people on the margins of society in Sub-Saharan Africa.
