Pak! (2012-2016)
These are portraits of people I encounter everyday. What fascinates me about them is their collective rebellion against inhibitions and acceptable behavior in what is largely a conservative Catholic society. Some of them are friends, some I had an intimate relationship with, and some are strangers, but I can identify with them within my environment.

Just the act of taking these photos have subjected me to the same criticisms that most of them have encountered.

In a way, it is an attempt to expose the world behind the façade that most Filipinos aspire to.
