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."
Very Good / Dust jacket has some spots and signs of use, mostly some creasing at the top edge but no tears. Sticker residue on the barcode on the rear. Inside in great condition with a slight hint of edge discolouration.
