Phyllis Galembo | West African Masquerade

One comment... »

Outstanding large-scale color photographs of West African Masquerade by Phyllis Galembo.

The photographs are taken from 2005 to 2006 and reflects the ritual adornment and spirituality of masquerade in Nigeria, Benin and Burkina Faso in West Africa. These portraits of masqueraders build on Galembo’s work of the past twenty years photographing the rituals and religious culture in Nigeria, Brazil, Cuba, Jamaica and Haiti.
