Monochromanila

Monochromanila was my first take on Project 52, a Tumblr-famous thing back in 2010 wherein one takes, picks, and posts a special photo once a week for an entire year. I was living in an apartment in Manila City at that time so I thought of documenting the life of random strangers on the streets.

As an amateur attempt on street photography, I used a Nikon D40, my first and only digital SLR. I post-processed the images using Adobe Photoshop to obtain a gritty, black and white effect. Thus, the series' name. The cat-eyeglasses logo was custom-made for me by my good friend, Justine.

01. A fish seller at Vicente Cruz wet market

02. A Yakult vendor at Vicente Cruz market

03. A soy bean curd vendor along Fajardo Street

04. A homeless woman along España Blvd.

05. Slipper vendors along Lacson Ave.

06. A homeless man along España Blvd.

07. A kid playing by himself at Quiapo's underpass

08. A man who sells "dirty" ice cream

09. Rag sellers along Magsaysay Blvd. (taken in a taxi)

10. A homeless man along Pureza

11. A homeless woman in Rizal Park

12. A homeless man along España Blvd.

13. A homeless man along Recto Blvd.


Sadly, I was only religious with the series for the 13 weeks. I am planning to restart this project (using the same name) and then use 35mm films instead. Manila City will always be in my heart.
