My second itinerary trip to the museum 2012: Metropolitan Museum of Manila.
I received an invitation via email from The MET for a photo exhibit from the students of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde AB Photography program. Yay for me and my friend, Camille (No Malice In Wonderland)! My museum list goes well!
We made it during the exhibit opening last January 26 and luckily saw the student photographers behind the awesome pictures. Every photo has a story, and every photographer has a duty to share their experience through that story by capturing it. People looking at it may have different observations and stories to tell, still, photos are beyond words and beyond explanations.
"One Day in the City: Pasay” is a photographic exhibit focusing on Pasay City. The show depicts facets of the urban fabric and the experience of city dwellers as seen thru the eyes of student photographers from the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde AB Photography program. The photography project is a way of showing how life is in one part of a 21st century Asian megalopolis like Metro Manila, and will provide a counterpoint and a response to the Spanish photography show “Photo By Photo: A Portrait of Spain” recently exhibited at the Met. The exhibit also features works of Spanish photographer Txema Salvans during his recent Manila visit.
“One Day in the City: Pasay” runs up to March 31, 2012 at the Tall Galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Manila. The show is organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde School of Design and Arts, The City Government of Pasay, Canon Marketing Philippines Inc. and the Spanish Embassy- Manila.
