For over two decades Galembo has been documenting cultural and religious traditions in Africa and the African Diaspora. Galembo began photographing in Nigeria in 1985; today she finds her subjects throughout western and central Africa that participate in traditional African ceremonies, masquerade events, contemporary dress, and carnivals. These participants use their costumes to create mythic characters; some are humorous and critical, others are bold and frightening. No matter what the mood, Galembo’s photographs always describe the transformative power of the mask.
