Allison Cashin submits Pieter Hugo

Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Pieter Hugo portrays African communities.  In the series "The Hyena and Other Men", Hugo travels with a group called the "Gadawan Kura" or hyena guides.  These men were entertain crowds and sell traditional medicines.  This is actually a tradition has been passed down for generations.  The way Hugo portrays these men does not seem real at all, this image seem more editorial than portrayals of an ancient tradition.  I admire how he captures the exotic and amplifies it to greater heights.
