Project Title: LOST SOUL
This is my first self portrait project. Something personal. It kind of reflects on how I’ve been feeling for the 2nd half of this year.
It’s about a girl that wonders around a house looking for something to do but can’t because of her unfortunate fate… A girl that doesn’t know that she’s lost.
Without the help of Mark Cedrix Lopez, a remote control and a tripod, this project wouldn’t be possible.
To My Refuge
I like to take myself into a world I create inside my head when things get out of hand in real life. Though the destination is beautiful, sometimes the journey is more important. And I’m not afraid to take the risk.
Medium: Photo Manipulation
Real interpretation behind the artwork.
When we were thinking of a topic for the exhibit, the two terms insomnia and hangover were mashed together. I started thinking about hangover. I thought about the idea of floating when I get a bit tipsy. From there, I focused more on the insomnia part with the floating element.
When I can’t sleep, I like to imagine. Imagine that all my worries are gone or entirely about something out of this world. That’s how I imagined being in the clouds and just floating there. The flock of birds also represent me wanting to be free.
The owl is a representation of wisdom. So basically, the owl knows what I’m thinking and of where to go - to my refuge.
The girl (that’s me), on the other hand, isn’t afraid and trusts the owl. That’s why my head is looking up and not down.
The moon as seen here is unrealistic and we really don’t see it up close on earth. That’s just my way of saying that I’m going somewhere surreal or magical.
The artwork is for sale. The size is 2ft by 2ft. PM me for details.

'Day and Night' Teaser Photo
It was one cloudy day at the Mapua rooftop where we took the chance to experiment with colors, costumes and lights.

A 7 photo set of Jean Yanga. Our location was at Fort Santiago, Intramuros.
It was fun to take pictures of her. She was so nice and cooperative. Too bad we didn’t stay long at Fort Santiago. It was also her 18th birthday the next day. So we thought that while we were there, we’d do a little “debut” photo shoot.
It was nice to finally have photo shoot again.
