"I’m fascinated by the ceremonial masks of West Africa. Their sheer imagination and creativity astound me and their effect of suspending you in another world is spellbinding. The Bwa people from Burkina Faso have a wonderful ceremony where they celebrate the new harvest. The masks are covered in fresh leaves from the first crops. These are burned every night and new ones are made in the morning. They are mesmerising." Porky Hefer
