Again, I'm not pissed off by Hugo staging and taking these pictures (I'm not impressed by his concepts either, but then again, it isn't 1922 and I'm not a poorly traveled ignoramus from the West with no internet access). It's presenting them as some version of reality that falls into an odious pattern that recurs with Africa - particularly the product description that claims that "Hugo's gorgeous photographs reveal a little-known phenomenon to a wider audience." Wow, I'd have guessed that more people know way more about Nollywood than about Mr. Hugo (only MILLIONS of people watch Nollywood movies every year), but I guess if it's not being defined or interpreted by a white guy for western audiences, then it doesn't really exist, does it?
Welcome, Mr. Hugo to the pantheon of "discoverers" like Mungo Park and Stanley. And shame on Zina and Chris for being party to this - yeah, I didn't read your pieces, but the vast majority of the "wider audience" won't either, so nothing you wrote could blunt the ignorance that's been spread so far.
