For decades and even for years, the Filipina photographers we’re about to introduce and reintroduce to you have carved new and safe spaces in a male-dominated world. To be a female photographer, to grab hold of an instrument that women traditionally remain in front of, and to be able to have an eye to view and challenge perspectives today is already worth celebrating. With the progress we have made, it’s completely discouraging to let certain circumstances set us years and years back.
