The Hyena & Other Men includes some striking photos Pieter took in and around Abuja Nigeria during the past several years of some locals â€˜taming the beasts â€TM if you will; it would be an understatement to say that it offers an impressive and candid look into Nigerian culture. This is the 3rd printing.

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 liminal existence reveal an uncanny world of complex, codependent relationships, where familiar distinctions between dominance and submission, wildness and domesticity, tradition and modernity are constantly subverted. Nigerian journalist Adetokunbo Abiola introduces readers to the 'Hyena Men', explaining the traditions and mystique behind their practices. Presented in thirty-two full-colour plates, these intense portraits reveal why Hugo is one of the most exciting young photographers at work today.Revue de presse :
