Publisher's Description

Themes of mortality and ordinariness in modern-day Mexico.

South African photographer Pieter Hugo’s (born 1976) latest body of work, La Cucaracha, explores death, sexuality, and spirituality across Mexico, from the industrialized areas of Mexico City and the desert of Hermosillo to the mountains of Ixtepec and San Cristóbal.

This is the first time this body of work is published in a book format. The book is a striking, tough and beautiful view of today’s Mexico. Printed in a limited print run of 1,500 hundred copies in a large and appealing format, the book will become a rare and collective piece.
