    Default Love Those Pics of the Hyena/monkey/python Men by Pieter Hugo

    The ’Gadawan Kura’ people... an amazing bunch of travelling entertainers in such a harsh environment, fantastic pics.

    Ive always liked Hyenas, such a strong animal. They can give a lion a run for its money.
    Not to sure about it been chained and muzzled though, but thats just me.
    Very cool pics indeed.

    I never knew they were that big and powerful. Makes a difference when you see them that close to a human.

    Very cool pics indeed. But also felt a bit sorry because of the chain and muzzle.

    “These pictures depict much more than an exotic group of travelling performers in West Africa. The motifs that linger are the fraught relationships we have with ourselves, with animals and with nature.”

    The subject matter is a wandering posse of men, a little girl, three hyenas, four monkeys and a few rock pythons. Their journeys from town to town is a means of survival – entertaining crowds & selling traditional ancient medicines.

    The images are almost difficult to comprehend for us westerners, living in our small, safe, structured bubble we have created for ourselves. They are prime example of the validity of photography as a story telling medium. They transport us out of our comfort zone, introduce us to new ideas which are completely outside our frame of reference, but completely normal to them. Pieter Hugo’s viewfinder is taking us to a place we’ll never travel to, showing us things we never knew existed and therein lies the meaning, and power of this brilliant photographers body of work.

    They are amazing pics.
    Old mate holding the mouth of a Hyena open blew me away. I always thought they would attack a human but he seems to have a relationship of sorts with it (trust?).
    The lack of human smiles makes it interesting to. Gets ya thinking for sure.
    Thanks for posting them up. My son will get a kick seeing this too.

    I feel quite sad for the hyenas, actually.
