    Times like this… words would be nice. It appears many of these are ritual dance costumes. Part wearable sculpture + part performance?

    I’m at an absolute loss. These are so insanely ALIVE. 5 is my favorite, I love all the colorful ones too obviously but something about the guy just covered in pieces from the earth, I’m so in love with it!

    SUCH great use of color.

    Do people like the photography or the fabric? The document or the message? It sparks some interesting thoughts/comments.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      that’s an interesting point – for me, i think the images have been expertly captured by a talented photographer.

      i have seen maaany totally dull photos taken at the most vibrant festivals/parades

      • http://www.kowalabearhugs.com Matt K

        I agree. When viewing Phyllis’s portfolio, a consistent approach and technique emerges. Photography and current screen based digital medium can often be perceived as ‘unreal’ or a phenomenon. The capture permits a comprehensive musing and the opportunity for interaction or personal narrative. A good curatorial choice for the graphic happy booooooom visitor.
