Prestel Publishing brings us Nollywood by Pieter Hugo, a photography book documenting the Nigerian film industry. The world’s 3rd largest, Nigeria’s film industry is often misunderstood by those who’ve never seen it, a situation that Nollywood hopes to change. Photographer Pieter Hugo shows us tableaus from Nigerian cinema, featuring local actors dealing with familiar themes of war, crime, poverty, and tragedy. A wonderful look at one of the most culturally rich nations in the world.
