One constant element in the Pieter Hugo’s work is the profound respect he has for his protagonists, whose dignity always remains intact. His portraits are carefully executed in classical, static positions. They give the photographer and his subjects the space and scope they need to condense into a two-way observation the outer appearance with inner attitude and general life circumstances with individual backgrounds.
