I’m a Filipino-Italian photographer based in Denmark. I have worked as a journalist in the Philippines for seven years, so much of my work deals with the complexities of the Filipino narrative. I largely explore themes pertaining to tropical aesthetics in relation to the western gaze, intergenerational post-colonial trauma, inequality, and spirituality.
