Veronica's Visa

At the waiting area right outside the US Embassy in Manila, entrepreneurs would set up an improvised photo studio for visa applicants traveling to the states. Accessories includes only a white cloth for backdrop, a monobloc chair and a handy compact camera. This shows how adaptable and resilient Filipinos can be in the age of technology.

    I was asking Cesar Dominguez (lolo_cdom), "where can I see your paintngs?" He said I wasn't digging enough into your sets. Wow! I love your work!

    Did you happen to have any hanging at SM Megamall in Ortigas? I think I might have seen your work there.

    I'm very inspired by your work.
