Pieter Hugo’s project LA CUCARACHA was created in Mexico in 2018 and 2019. He was particularly impressed by the sensibility of Mexican cultures and by the contrasts that coexist within the country. Violence and community spirit, decay and eros, joy and tragedy, extravagance and banality – the artist saw all of these as being present in equal measure. One constant element in the photographer’s work is the profound respect he has for his protagonists, whose dignity always remains intact.
