Pieter Hugo was born in 1976 in Capetown, South Africa. He chose the photographer profession, and he focuses on Africa’s social and economic conflicts, and the actual problems and challenges of the transforming continent. The artist, earlier working as a photo reporter, won the price of the most prestigious press photo competition, THe World Press Photo, in 2006, and opened an independent show at the Hague Museum of Photography in 2012.
He takes beautiful, real and sometimes sad photos. Those who are curious about Hugo’s work, travel to the capital of Hungary, the scenic Budapest, because there will be a fantastic exhibition about Pieter Hugo’s works between 2003 and 2012 in the Ludwig Museum, or on another name the Museum of Contemporary Art, for 24 May 2013 to 11 August 2013.
