Pieter Hugo: La Cucaracha

Text by Pieter Hugo, Mario Bellatin, Ashraf Jamal.

Themes of mortality and ordinariness in modern-day Mexico

This is Cape Town–based photographer Pieter Hugo’s (born 1976) homage to Mexico, in portraits, landscapes and still-life vignettes with bright shades of pink, blue and green.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Elephant

Charlotte Jansen

This is a series about sex, and death—interpreted explicitly: naked flesh and blood, burning and cut-up corpses, fallen fruit and blooming flowers. Nature and humanity perform a strange and beguiling dance across the pages—La Cucaracha playing faintly in the background.

New York Times

Osman Can Yerebakan

[It] was its people’s day-to-day understanding of life’s fragility that inspired his new photography series, “La Cucaracha." Hugo named the series after the popular folk song about an injured cockroach whose lyrics are often rewritten in Mexico as political satire.
