THE HYENA & OTHER MEN

by PIETER HUGO

“These photographs came about after a friend emailed me an image taken on a cellphone through a car window in Lagos, Nigeria, which depicted a group of men walking down the street with a hyena in chains. A few days later I saw the image reproduced in a South African newspaper with the caption ‘The Streets of Lagos’. Nigerian newspapers reported that these men were bank robbers, bodyguards, drug dealers, debt collectors. Myths surrounded them. The image captivated me.

Through a journalist friend I eventually tracked down a Nigerian reporter, Adetokunbo Abiola, who said that he knew the ‘Gadawan Kura’ as they are known in Hausa (a rough translation: ‘hyena handlers/guides’).

A few weeks later I was on a plane to Lagos. Abiola met me at the airport and together we took a bus to Benin City where the ‘hyena men’ had agreed to meet us.” – PIETER HUGO (Full Text Here)

On my things to own list… The LM Rally Fighter. 1st off, the car is hot. Also, it gives off a new age Mad Max feel and I Love Mad Max (Mad Max 2 – Beyond Thunderdome movie clip). This car makes me want to consider life in the desert. Visit Local Motors to reserve your own Rally Fighter or click here for more info.
