Pieter Hugo in i-D

Pieter Hugo photographs his two children in lockdown

THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE|By Ryan White|11 November 2020, 4:00pm

For The 40th Anniversary Issue of i-D, acclaimed South African photographer Pieter Hugo is our Artist in Residence.

For the past seven months, the photographer Pieter Hugo and his family – wife Tamsyn and children Jacob and Sofia – have lived in a quiet secluded village along the South Africancoast. Adopting one of the earliest and strictest lockdowns in the world, since March the president of South Africa has entirely shut down the country’s borders, prohibited the sale of alcohol and also imposed a strict night curfew throughout much of this period. 

But for this issue of i-D, Pieter is confronting birth – even with the constant looming presence of death in 2020. “The first thing I concerned myself with was the wellbeing of my family, so making work – well, my head just wasn’t in the right place.” As time went by, he began to find himself “unfrozen from the paralysis” and, between homeschooling classes, he and his two children began working on a story together. “I actually had a conversation with my family about the idea and chatted to my kids about it first,” he says. “I don’t photograph my wife very much, she doesn’t enjoy being photographed so I respect that. And I’m very conscious of not shoving a camera in my kids’ faces all the time, because I don’t want them to become resistant to being photographed by me. I don’t want making pictures to become a power struggle.”

Notes on a post-order of things


‘Was also ist der Organismus in der Welt, wenn nicht der unbedachte Flug eines Möglichen in das Herz des Unmöglichen, das ihn umgibt’ 

(George Bataille, Der Übervölkerte Planet, aus: Das Unfertige System des Nichtwissens)


‘Ich nähere mich diesen Leinwänden wie Notizen, halte sie in einem skizzenhaften und unvollständigem Zustand. Sie geben einer rudimentären Erscheinung der Dinge Form, und eine Struktur, die Gedankenprozesse markiert oder aufzeichnet. 

Ich  habe mit dieser Reihe von Bildern letztes Jahr begonnen, damals als eine Untersuchung des von der Norm Abweichenden, von Grenzerfahrungen und -Überschreitungen, ein anthropologischer Ansatz zu einer aus den Fugen geratenen Welt. Ein imaginatives Zu-Ende-Denken der Dinge als fiktive Repräsentation einer Anders-, Nach- oder Vorzeitlichkeit.

Mittlerweile ist die affirmative Handlung der poetischen Imagination ein Mittel zum Erlangen von Resilienz im Angesicht der realen Umstände geworden.  Ich suche nach einer Möglichkeit bestimmte Ideen und Denkweisen zu überwinden, das Ersticken des Denkens in der alltäglichen Semantik einer konventionalistischen Klassifizierung. Ich denke solange Poesie möglich ist – als das Sehnen nach dem Unmöglichen – kann eine Art von Hoffnung möglich sein. Ich sehe Kunst als ein Mittel der Realität, in dem sie über sich selbst bewusst wird.’

Notes on a post-order of things

‘What therefore is the organism in the world, if not the unconsidered flight of a possible into the heart of the impossible that surrounds it?‘ 

(George Bataille, The Congested Planet, from: The Unfinished System of Nonknowledge)

‘I approach these canvases as notes, keeping them sketch-like and incomplete. They give form to a state of the rudimentary appearances of things and a structure that marks thought processes.

I started this line of paintings last year, back then as a survey on what deviates from the norm, of border experiences and border transgressions, an anthropological approach to a world gone off rail. An imaginative thinking of things to its end; as a fictional representation of an alternative, post- or pre-temporaneity.

Now, the affirmative action of the poetic imagination has become a means of achieving resilience towards real circumstances. I am looking for a way to overcome certain ideas and ways of thinking that tend to suffocate in a type of everyday semantics of conventionalist classification. I think that as long as poetry is possible – as the longing for the impossible – a kind of hope can be possible. I see art as a means of reality to gain consciousness about itself.’
