Senegal Mask Photography Series

Working in Senegal for 3 weeks, by participating in a GAP (the Global Art Project) residency, gave me the freedom to formulate a new photo series. Five little girls were visiting the studio one afternoon and I arranged with their father to photograph them wearing paper masks I had made. We were only outside for a few minutes before I had a swarm of local kids eager to wear the painted masks and pose for photos.
