Masking is a complex tradition in which the participants transcend the physical world and enter the spiritual realm. Masks, costumes, and body paint transform the human body and encode a rich range of political, artistic, theatrical, social and religious meanings.In her color photographs, Galembo highlights the artistry of the performers and how they use materials from their immediate environment to morph into a fantastical representation of themselves and an idealized vision of a mythical figure.
