Angel

We were in San Jose, Tarlac to for the Abelling Tribe’s Anito Festival. Rituals have been going on for a week in one house to transfer the Anito from an aging tribesman to a younger host. During this afternoon, the elders were chanting, dancing, and performing other rituals. But just right next the small crowd were kids running around, playing with their phones, and mocking the elders’ dances.

I saw this girl sitting in the same spot facing the wall. I sat behind her to wait for a good shot. While I was waiting, kids in the house started gathering behind me. They probably noticed that my camera was facing towards the sitting baby in front of us so they called her. For a few minutes they called, “Angel, Angel.”, but still she wouldn’t budge. Then a girl came in and turned her around. After a few clicks people stopped walking in between, and I got this shot. 

Aside from the final photo, what I liked more about this photo was how she got to pose and what was happening right next to her. After years into photography, the most important thing I learned is that the story behind the photo is what makes it meaningful.

Dunking on Mt. Mutombo is something you have to fight for, Rocky. He’s not a prop. He’s a four-time Defensive Player of the Year. You didn’t really think it was going to be that easy, did you? Think like a punk; get treated like one. (03/17/14)

Chaz and Dominic at a vulcanizing shop. We did a 70 kilometer bike ride around Jala-jala. The roads were bad and we got flat tires twice. Luckily, there were a lot of vulcanizing shops along the route.
