Veronica's Visa

    Newer Older

    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.

      This is an excellent work! My favorite in the show. Good pinoy twist of humor too! This can be in the book "You know you are in the Philippines when ...."

      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.
