Photos by Phyllis Galembo. A feast of colour.
i LOVE these.
^me too. they could be the definition of ‘life’.
yesssss, i love these!
Would you Believe i used to assist Phyllis? she’s an EXCEPTIONAL human being…
wow – when and where?
YEAH! how freaky are these, rough in texture and patterns. brilliant.
who knew there were so many noise-punk bands in west africa?
wow forcefield was really awesome
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!
This shows so well, that ART is simply non-exclusive in regards to geography nor race or religion, Art happens among all, and this is simply FUN FUNKY is plain WOW LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reminds me of Nick Cave’s soundsuits
SUCH great use of color.
Do people like the photography or the fabric? The document or the message? It sparks some interesting thoughts/comments.
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
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.
