Book Description

31 Mar 2012
This Must Be the Place presents nearly ten years of work by award-winning South African photographer Pieter Hugo. This book includes a selection of over 100 seminal images from before and after The Hyena & Other Men, the series that catapulted him into the spotlight in 2007. Perceptive essays by TJ Demos and Aaron Schuman situate Hugo s extraordinary career within the realm of contemporary photography and the larger historical context of his native continent, Africa. As Schuman writes, Hugo's images offer an arresting argument for the untrustworthiness of photography, and at the same time reveal the striking vitality that remains at the heart of the medium when a practitioner bravely dares to pose difficult questions.

Product Description


This Must be the Place (2012) is a retrospective volume that houses photographs from each of his earlier series as well as portraits and landscapes that have never been shown or published before. Essays by esteemed photographic critics TJ Demos and Aaron Schuman put Hugo's career in context within the realm of contemporary photography. Hugo is a genius at finding sublime subtleties in stark surroundings. --Travel Africa, April 2012

The book culminates with a long series entitled Kin, South Africa, which features landscapes and portraits, including several of his family. They evince a sense of belonging that his previous work could be said to question in various ways. What he is questioning most, though, is photography itself, its limits as well as its myriad, increasingly complex, strategies of representation. --The Observer, April 2012
