Pieter Hugo

 Steven Mohapi, Johannesburg, 2003
"The series, which includes participants from countries as diverse as Brazil, Greece and the United Kingdom, was initiated in South Africa, the photographer's country of origin. "The idea started with an earlier body of work titled 'Margin'," Pieter explains. 'Margin' dealt with people living on the peripheries of modern South African society, and included a portrait of an orphaned albino boy stood next to a birdbath outside his orphanage. "I kept returning to this picture," says Pieter. "Something about it captivated me, the role albinism plays in South African society."" READ MORE...

Happy Birthday Diane Arbus.

Photograph of Diane Arbus by Allan Arbus, c. 1949
 "Giving a camera to Diane Arbus is like putting a live grenade in the hands of a child." - Norman Mailer  

Diane Arbus would have turned 89 yesterday. A huge influence on my work, I wanted to take a moment to post some of my favorite photographs of hers...

From the dawn of consciousness, we’ve been trying to frame, in everything from creation mythology to zoological parks, the simultaneous sense of kinship with and irreparable separateness from animals that our consciousness calls to mind."  Read More...-  By CHARLES SIEBERT

"The Monkey House was also where, in 1906, the zoo exhibited a human, a Congolese pygmy named Ota Benga, who wrestled with an orangutan in a cage. “It’s certainly something that shouldn’t have happened,” Mr. Breheny said. " Read More...- By JAMES BARRON
