What’s good world!?
So here’s the deal, I got a heads up on a lecture coming to the San Francisco Art Institute, part of the Aperture West Collaborative Lecture Series. South African photographer, Pieter Hugo, will be heading this lecture, sharing his photography of his country and its subcultures as featured on the cover of Aperture Magazine.
So here’s the skinny…
Aperture West Collaborative Lecture Series
South African acclaimed artist Pieter Hugo will discuss his work on his country’s society including judges, entertainers, workers and albinos. His striking portraits question the art of portraiture today. He will share the underlying meaning of his thought-provoking and controversial images of South Africa and its subcultures.
Pieter Hugo has recently gained international recognition. He has been named the Standard Bank Young Artist for 2007 and he won the first prize in the portraits section of the 2006 World Press Photo competition. Featured in the Spring 2007 issue of Aperture magazine and in Colors, this young photographer has established himself as one of the best portraitists at work today.
