In and Around Metro Manila

In the Philippines, life unfolds with incredible ferocity carrying along a chaotic torrent of human experience. Generosity, adaptability, and resourcefulness mix with great tragedy to create a unique way of being. The Philippines is the manifestation of a world of extremes in which nothing is improbable. A narrow road or arching bridge may separate vastly contrasting neighborhoods. Unexpected dark alleys flourish with life and the excited screams of children. In endless microcosms spread throughout the country hide moments of wonder through which life is eloquently expressed.
