The Philippines exists simultaneously in several time frames.
Ancient structures and traditions co-exist, for instance, with 20th century kitsch and pop, as well as today's icons of high technology and fashion. The challenge is to capture this blend of past and present—whether conflicting or harmonious, amusing or sublime—in images that can inspire fresh ways of seeing our country and our culture.
