I’ve just returned back home this week from my trip to the Philippines, feeling a little tired and jet lagged but still buzzing from the experience I had over there. Photographically, I think I captured the shots I was assigned to do from Outreach International, but it was great to be able to capture the Filipino people as I crafted some of my own images. From a humanitarian point of view, I learnt a lot and I bow down in admiration for the workOutreach International are doing out there, the Philippine OI staff are true heroes – check out some of their work here.
Over the next few weeks I’ll post more images of the Philippines but here’s a start. On the whole, the Filipino people are happy and extremely resilient even as they have to face extremely difficult circumstances day in day out. There were some amazing characters – here’s a selection.
