Fallen Orange featured on Your Daily Photograph

For the month of November, my alma mater Brooks Institute and by Duncan Miller Gallery in Los Angeles collaborated together to feature the works of students, alumni and faculty. Gallery Director Jesse Groves reached out in late October and invited me to join. On November 16th, the image Fallen Orange, 2007 from The House Remembered series was featured. is an invaluable online resource for collectors of fine art photography. Each image is offered for sale for 24-hours or until the first collector contacts the gallery to purchase the print. Along side emerging artists, past YDP photographers featured were Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andreas Gursky, Richard Misrach, Andre Kertesz, Edward Burtynsky.

A huge thank you to writer Marianne Villanueva for inviting me to photograph her home and to collaborate with her on this series. Check out her blog: Kanlaon

The Billboard is Up!

The billboard with the image Tito Phil's Chair from the Family Spaces series went up on the corner of Mission and 14th Street in San Francisco earlier this month. Thank you to The Arts at CIIS curator Deirdre Visser for making me a part of this project.

About the Billboard Project:

In 2013 The Arts at CIIS is reaching outside the walls of the school and into the streets. Our first site is the billboard on the east side of the CIIS Main Building, visible from the highly trafficked intersection of 10th and Mission Streets. Over the course of the year, we will feature the work of ten artists, both emerging and mid-career, starting with Wendel White, Cristina de Middel, and Glynnis Reed. This forum allows us to expand our audience while inserting art into a space typically used for advertising. The curatorial focus this year is on contemporary artists navigating ideas around landscape—a landscape of memory, an emotional landscape, or a landscape of collective history.

Thank You to Collect.Give Supporters

I've been meaning to share this thank you letter from the Guidance Center in Somerville, MA where $1,000 dollars was donated to them with the generous help of Collect.Give supporters. It is my niece's 13th birthday today and I thought this would be a good occasion to post it.

To my Filipino family, friends and supporters, Maraming Salamat po!

Wandering Series Featured on Fraction Magazine Issue 48

A big thank you to David Bram for featuring the Wandering Series on Issue 48 of Fraction Magazine. I am also humbled to be in the company of Richard Bram, Polly Braden and Eric Kim. To be quite honest, I didn't expect this at all. I've been quietly doing street photography for several years and sharing them here on my blog and a few on Flickr. When I heard back from David, I was very surprised. Thank you for seeing the potential in this body of work. 

Editor's Note:

I've been a fan of street photography for quite sometime, and I've had a desire to do a Street issue for as many years. But I have to be honest, this issue nearly killed me.

Let me explain.

Finding two male photographers who had solid street projects was not the problem. There are plenty of male street photographers out there in the world, and I am thrilled to show you the work of Richard Bram (no relation) and Eric Kim (cousins). But finding two female street photographers proved to be a bit of a task. I had to resort to posting to the Fraction facebook page, begging for help. Why is this?

Luckily, through the use of social media, I was able to find two, fantastic female photographers who are doing terrific photographic street work. I am very excited and pleased to show you the work of Stella Kalaw and Polly Braden.

Creating this issue has led me to think a lot about the nature of project themes and how men and women may be drawn to photograph different things. I would love to further this discussion on the Fraction Facebook page.

I hope you enjoy this issue.
