Celebrated for his often unsettling images, especially from his native continent of South Africa, Pieter Hugo is a photographer with a passion for revealing the truth, no matter how painful or disturbing it may be. In this book, he turns his lens to images of reconciliation, healing, and hope as seen in the faces of children, including his own. 1994 refers to a pivotal moment in African history—specifically in South Africa, which held its first free and democratic elections that year, and Rwanda, where a clash between the Tutsi and Hutu ethnic groups gave rise to a brutal genocide. Hugo photographs children in a landscape from which they emerge and are sometimes engulfed by, some representing more of the Edenic, while others seem older, more impacted by life. His photographs are both unsentimental and straightforward.

Pieter Hugo (born 1976 in Johannesburg) is a photographic artist living in Cape Town. Major museum solo exhibitions have taken place at The Hague Museum of Photography, Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, Ludwig Museum in Budapest, Fotografiska in Stockholm,  MAXXI in Rome and the Institute of Modern Art Brisbane, among others. Hugo has participated in numerous group exhibitions at institutions including Tate Modern, the Folkwang Museum, Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, and the São Paulo Bienal. His work is represented in prominent public and private collections, among them the Museum of Modern Art, V&A Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, J Paul Getty Museum, Walther Collection, Deutsche Börse Group, Folkwang Museum and Huis Marseille. Hugo received the Discovery Award at the Rencontres d’Arles Festival and the KLM Paul Huf Award in 2008, the Seydou Keita Award at the Rencontres de Bamako African Photography Biennial in 2011, and was shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2012. www.pieterhugo.com
