The Phyllis Galembo photography documents the costumes of indigenous people from all over the world. She has traveled to places ranging from Cuba to Nigeria, and Haiti to Mexico. Getting a glimpse of these culture's dress is rare for most people, but the intense colors and patterns serve as inspiration for fashion and costume alike.

The work of Phyllis Galembo can be seen as an exhibition at the Three Squares Studio in New York City. Her work fits in well with the artistic landscape of NYC. It is something new, only because it has been glossed over in the past. Galembo brings to the forefront cultures that have always been there. Her audience can appreciate the genuine culture that is being captured, as well as the way these cultures can inspire the Western world.
