Issue #33/ Trip / Jan Hoek
The series Sweet Crazies is made up of portraits of
a particular group of the homeless living on the streets of Addis
Ababa. All of them mentally ill, they roam the streets and are
known to the locals as Sweet Crazies. Jan Hoek portrayed them in
photo studios furnished with Roman pillars and golden thrones,
re-imagining them as kings, or emperors.
