Inspiration via Nigeria, Benin and Burkina Faso


I'm beginning to harbour the seeds of an obsession with superstitious rituals from all different cultures.. Pagan Runes, Haitian Voodoo, Romanian Gypsy curses and Modern Secret Societies. I don't quite know what creative medium this obsession will manifest itself into, maybe a collection of jewelery or a series of photographs.. (Hopefully not my hair falling out in the shower ALA The Craft, lol)
But in the meantime I thought I would share with you some incredible imagery which
reflect the ritual adornment and spirituality of masquerade in Nigeria, Benin and Burkina Faso in West Africa, by documentative photographer PHYLLIS GALEMBO.
