Xenophilia

Xenophilia, which literally means 'affinity for strangers,' was a loose sequel to Monochromanila. Similarly, it features 13 random people in their usual bouts, all in high-contrast black and white.

These images were captured mostly around the cities of Pasig and Manila. That was the time when I transitioned from analogue to digital. I was still a student and didn't have much funds for a decent film stash so I mostly took pictures using my Nikon D40.

01. "Rali"

02. "Buko"

03. "Basureros"

04. "Sabung-sabungan"

05. "Tanghaling Tapat"

06. "Boy Limos"

07. "Labandera"

08. "Oberpas"

09. "Sampaguita"

10. "Pinya"

11. "Antanda"

*12. "Bulok"

13. "Kariton"

*Picture #12 is my personal favorite. I was waiting for a bus ride home in Recto, Manila when I took this picture. I was very hesitant to take out my camera especially when a stranger near me freaked me out and said, "Hoy! Bawal 'yan ha!" I'm glad the thrill was worth it because I like the composition (and the message of the photo) very much.
