Find Halloween & Day of the Dead inspiration in Phyllis Galembo's 'Mexico Masks Rituals'

For anyone looking to get away from this season's out-of-the-box vampires, ghosts, skeletons and witches, old school DIY Halloween and Day of the Dead inspiration can be found in Phyllis Galembo's fascinating new photography monograph on the ritual masks, costumes and cultures of Mexico. Worn on festival days that often combine elements of indigenous and Catholic holidays, the masks, costumes and body paint that Galembo documented over several years traveling throughout of the country are all highly symbolic and specific to the characters of each regional festival. Pictured here is a character from Danza de los Santiagueros during the festival of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Chignautla, Puebla, 2015.
