Divine Inspiration

From Benin to Bahia.

Photographs by Phyllis Galembo. Foreward by David Byrne. Essays by Robert Farris Thompson, Joseph Nevadomsky, Norma Rosen, & Zeca Ligiero.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque, 1993. 169 pp., numerous color plates, 11¼x11¾".

In 1985, photographer Phyllis Galembo travelled to Nigeria at the invitation of colleague Norma Rosen. From that journey comes this significant body of work that encompasses both Nigerian Benin tradition and the more general Brazilian form of the ancient African spirituality brought to the New World with the Atlantic slave trade of the sixteenth century. "This book breaks new ground in the study of the African Diaspora while it provides powerful photographs that are, above all, a celebration of the senses."--the publisher. Galembo's intense color photographs truly convey the spiritual texture of her subject while they document a culture's rich heritage.
