Poster Design for POICHET
Artist: Poi Beltran


Photo-graphy: The writing of light. The light of photography remains proper to the image. Photographic light is not “realistic” or “natural.” It is not artificial either. Rather, this light is the very imagination of the image, its own thought. It does not emanate from one single source, but from two different, dual ones: the object and the gaze. – Baudrillard

New set of photos redefining photography…

After several years of taking photographs of people i love and hate, of places I have been and never been, of things that happened and will never happen again.  I am now questioning photography as a medium. How it manipulates me and everything that surrounds me. Is it I who controls the machine and the Other. Or is it the Other controlling the machine that is controlling me? Is it I who tells the TRUTH or the Other telling a lie? Or maybe it is the mirror in between who controls us both? I’d like to find out.

Manny Pacquiao Profiles:

A 7 page novel capturing the life of  Manny Pacquiao and our nation’s soul.

“What are you doing there?” Freddie Roach asks. He’s looking over my shoulder at my scratchings. He seems amused.

“I don’t know,” I tell him. Roach stands there for a moment. Then he shrugs.

“We’re not going to see another Manny Pacquiao again,” he says. “Not in this lifetime.”

The Remnant!!!!

I keep listening to this song over and over!
Such a sweet beautiful song with a lovely (super8 look) video!
