:::This one and the other new stuff in this series are inspired by the works of Steve Chong , Malaysian surrealist and multi-awarded photographer.
::Above and two of my other photos were featured in an art exhibition held at Marriot Hotel in Cebu City last March, 2007. The exhibition was part of a series of activities for 2007 International Women's Day by organizers of Artcebu and Maharlikha.
My thanks and congratulations to King, Jagat, Yatu, Michelle, and all of the wonderful organizers of the event.
an elusive form,
she haunts me at night.
she invades me ,
like a dream that wouldn't go away
i feel choked by the many questions
that come to me.
:: The photo above was taken just this morning. It took me around an hour to get it done, including makeup and other preparations. There was a bit of discomfort because (1) I didn't have my tripod with me, and (2) the paint smelled really bad. Good thing though the model was very patient. He made my work easier for me.
From tertium quid. The third thing. That state of mind between joy and pain. Between life and death. Between belief and nonbelief. That refuge between lie and truth.
