two things very close to my heart: photography (and my advocacy in) education
I would like to share an inspiring exhibition I stumbled upon at the Rizal Museum Exhibition Hall last week. Interestingly, it shows how the art of black and white photography creates a happy marriage with painting.
Nine young scholars (who were formerly out-of-school-youths) were given ONE camera to share. The scholars were then released out in the world to experiment with the new medium. They were asked to document the world around them.
What do they see through the lens? What do they want to show us?
|I met four of the nine scholars during my second visit. They are shown here with their art works.|
Anakatira Cebu decided to revisit the origins of photography. Thus, the scholars have printed the pictures in black and white and then they painted on top, adding a touch of colour to a black and white world.
