Pieter Hugo


Pieter Hugo was the Standard Bank Young Artist for Visual Art 2007, and this book accompanied his award exhibition touring South Africa during 2007/8. The large-format book features Hugo's photographs of South Africa's northernmost town on the border with Zimbabwe - both portraits of its inhabitants and details of its landscape. In addition the book includes a short story by Stacy Hardy titled 'The Donkey Fuckers', and a conversation between Hugo and writer/photo-editor Joanna Lehan.
