Format: Hardcover
Hardcover, card boards with photographic DJ, 9.5" x 9", 208 Pages, 94 full-page color photos of masquerade masks & costumes, (71 depictions from Africa and 23 from Haiti), 7 Pages of text. (Introduction by Chika Okeke-Agulu) Original pricing : 30 Pounds (UK), $45 (US) Published by Chris Boot, 2010.

From the back cover : "Maske is an album of Phyllis Galembo's powerful and thrilling masquerade photographs from Nigeria, Benin, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Zambia, and Haiti." Okay - It's true that the photographs are posed and static, and that there is too little in the way of descriptions of each costume, and that the presentation is a little spare and unbalanced....BUT.....the images themselves are striking works of art. The photographs have a wonderful dreamlike quality as if they were tribal art seen through the lens of David Lynch. Vibrant, beautifully lit mask and costume art, modeled by almost entirely anonymous people, captured in a photographic museum which appeals to the tribal art lover in me, but which I hope appeals to all lovers of art and photography. Please see past its faults to appreciate a simply wonderful book.
