Pieter Hugo is well known for his urgent portraits and everyday scenes captured at a wide variety of locations around the world. His project LA CUCARACHA was created in Mexico in 2018 and 2019. A series of portraits shows the full-fledged transgender “muxe” culture of Juchitán; here, Pieter Hugo is more interested in the aspect and expression of an older generation than in the stereotypical cult of youth that is more usually shown.
