Pieter Hugo
The Bereaved

These four portraits were shot at a morgue in Khayelitsha, Cape Town. They show men who died of AIDS-related illnesses, in their caskets prior to their return to the Eastern Cape for burial. The photographs are the start of a new project exploring the spaces associated with mourning and the bereaved families of the deceased.
