We are born of star dust and molded by the sea. Pearls started in a daydream inspired by women and their relationship with mother nature as they dance and play with the ocean faces.
Originally released on June 12 2021 —Philippine Independence day, this powerful series invites viewers to immerse themselves in the strength, beauty and fierceness of women. The muses are a FORCE in the water, gems of the sea, excelling beyond gender limitations and capabilities with grace and passion.
In celebration of its one year anniversary we are releasing the full collection of PEARLS. On the website you will find new images and never before seen photographs of the collection.
All orders go through the website. These are meant for public consumption and printed on photo paper 91x61 cm. All photos will be dry sealed for authenticity .
This launch coincides with a gallery show at Qube Gallery Cebu (@qubegalleryph) in the Design Center Of Cebu — where we will have very limited archival editions and some images exclusive to the show.
