West African Masquerade by Phyllis Galembo

West African Masquerade: Photographs by Phyllis Galembo is a 2007 presented series organised by Ian Berry, curated for the Tang Museum. 

Large-scale color photographs from 2005 to 2006 reflect 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, as well as the homegrown custom of Halloween in the United States.
