Pieter Hugo at Yossi Milo

The South African photographer's previous work with itinerant performers and their trained animals led him to a series of far freakier "Nollywood" pictures—portraits of bit players in Nigeria's booming low-budget film industry.

In his latest series, Hugo poses bizarrely costumed actors on busy streets and empty lots, creating funny, gory tableaux that are surreal. A man covered in hair sits at a café with a bottle of Coke; three children in white body paint (pint-size zombies) hang out in a field; a doleful-looking woman sits on an unmade bed, the bloody knife between her breasts sticking out her back.

From The New Yorker.
