Pieter Hugo’s project LA CUCARACHA was created in Mexico in 2018 and 2019. The portraits and still lifes bring to the fore the travelling artist’s openness towards generic yet unexpected situations. Young people, old people, a wedding, prostitution, combat sports, slaughtering of cattle, a nudist beach, and a forensic facility – the images run the entire gamut of the comédie humaine.
