Photography means many different tings to many people. Whether it is just a hobby, a profession or an art-form, it’s very much a part of the Human Culture. I consider it to be my craft. This blog is just one of the many ways that I try to contribute to the culture. I do this for the love of Photography. If you'd like to support this blog, check out my photo book and zine on Magcloud.
Malasimbo: The First 8 years is a photobook nearly a decade in the making. There was a point in my life that I wanted to pursue photography as a career. Around that same time, relatives from half-way 'round the world in the Philippines were organizing a music festival and knowing that I had an interest in photography, I was invited to document the festivities. I didn't have any inkling at the time that I would be going back and forth every year just for this pokey little music festival. For practical constraints, Malasimbo has recently changed venues. So I thought what better way to honor it as well as contribute to the zeitgeist by putting together a photo book of the first 8 years in its original location.
LAG TIME is a zine I started. The premise is to do a photo walk over the course of a long layover or a weekend trip in a city that I've never been to or have always wanted to go. The aesthetic is pure Street Photography. I don't have a real destination in mind but it's more about documenting the journey along the way.
All publications are available in both print and digital formats but as a Photographer, I cannot stress the importance of being able to hold your work in your own hands. It's one thing to tag someone on Social Media but it's something completely different and more personal to hold a physically tangible artifact that doesn't need battery life or a screen to view.
But if none of these interest you, I'm saving up to build a Time Machine and I'm going to need a lot of coffee to work it all out.
