I am a multidisciplinary visual artist based in Dumaguete City, the Philippines. During my time at Foundation University, I was lucky enough to have been given sponsored equipment and to be mentored by LA Times photographer Luis Sinco. Upon graduating, I did a stint as an Art & Photography course teacher, and also conducted - along with Sir Luis, and Magnum photographer Eli Reed - a series of South Pacific photography workshops. Now, as a full-time artist-in-residence at Foundation University, when I'm not in the studio creating art, I'm out on the streets with my camera in hand. Over the years, I've often been quick to the scene of local historical events, unable to resist the potential for a good picture, and from time-to-time my photographs are featured in local newspapers, as well as national and international publications. As I mature as a photographer, and as a person, I find myself becoming increasingly aware of the transience of human beings, particularly in the context of wherever they may be, or whatever they may be doing, at any given time. I am fascinated by the fact that every time I click the shutter in front of a stranger moving and interacting within their environment, I have captured a little piece of the absolute randomness of life, a snapshot of an otherwise unremarkable moment in history, that is timely, comical, tricky to the eye or just plain beautiful. It really is an incredible feeling when suddenly, out from the mundane, the Universe delivers a fleeting and uncanny moment of magic and 'click', it's not lost forever, and becomes a recorded and tangible piece of art.
