Item description for The Hyena & Other Men by Pieter Hugo...

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-five full-color plates, these intense portraits reveal why
Hugo is one of the most exciting young photographers at work
