About

GLA Resting is a limited edition photographs taken in Burkina Faso, West Africa. They are part of her West African Masque Series. They are an edition of 20, each signed and numbered. They are 17x22, printed on archival paper. Framed to 22 1/2 x 27 1/2. The original photographs were taken in 1991. Cheryl Koralik's career as a photographer began while studying at Columbia College in Chicago under the tutelage of Bob Thall, Ruth Thorne-Thomsen and Alan Cohen. After decades as a successful fashion and advertising photographer, Cheryl moved in a new direction. She began to explore a photojournalistic path and traveled to India and Burkina Faso on humanitarian assignments with the non-governmental organization, Action on Disability and Development. This is when she discovered the West African masques. And, suddenly, with an organic force and a passionate surge of obligation, her life changed completely. She found her true voice. Thus began a new chapter in her photographic career—the masque series. Over the next two decades, she made several expeditions to various West African countries, researching and photographing tribal masques—mediums of the spirit world—and their associated rituals.
