New York has many exciting things in its favour: the Statue of Liberty, some of the most flamboyant street fashion about, galleries so great you’d happily run the streets naked in exchange for a visit and perhaps some of the weirdest and most wonderful photographs of masquerade and ritual costume you may ever see!
Exhibiting at New York’s Three Squares Studio, the exceptionally talented photographer Phyllis Galembo has travelled the world far and wide documenting the costumes of indigenous populations everywhere from Cuba and Nigera to Mexico and Haiti, and the results are just incredible.
Offering an insightful look into the often under-wraps traditions and cultures from all around the world, her photographs maintain just the right balance of bizarre and fantastic. From the grass skirts of West Africa to the flamboyant full body cloths of Nigeria, Phyllis has photographed it all, and in such a beautifully graceful and observant way. I for one am seriously bowled over.
