Revisting another of my favourite photographers, Pieter Hugo. The Nollywood series captures the macabre world of the Nigerian horror film industry but in a playful way. I am never very sure if I like them because of the actual photographs, or because of the bizarre industry that they capture. The Nollywood film industry releases over 1000 films a year straight to home-release. Without a Hollywood budget, there is something very charming about the lo-tech effects and costumes. But I feel Huge captures this feeling perfectly, by almost making the characters look at home, and often in a very mundane set. Check out more of the series of Hugo’s website.
