Sorry guys, I’m really very busy right now with a deadline. Cebu Ocho will continue, hopefully, by next week. For the meantime, enjoy and reflect on a semana santa series which I did and is my major story for my final portfolio in the Diploma in Photojournalism class (ACFJ-Ateneo de Manila University) which ended two weeks ago. By the way, this is only a slideshow.

I went back to Infanta, Quezon last April to do my major photo story as a requirement of my diploma course. This time, I spent several days documenting the preparation and actual activity that culminated on Good Friday. I have posted about this ritual here previously, which detailed my experiences and observations.

This was first posted in estancabigas.com, my portfolio site.

Estan Cabigas is freelance photographer, blogger and writer based in Makati City, the Philippines. A true blue Cebuano, he makes stunning images and meaningful photo stories. His work has been published in local and international publications including National Geographic Magazine, Geo (Germany), Sunday Times Magazine (London) and other publications.

He is also a peripatetic traveler and has traveled to all 81 Philippines provinces.

I'm open for work, collaborations and inquiries, including hotel, restaurant and site features and reviews.

  1. Wow. Strong coverage as usual.
    And those rituals are quite stunning. I could use additional info to understand all the images.
    I hope your teachers will be as happy as I am with the results 😉

  2. i just read your loop series. i can’t find that article where you were interrogated by the military. 🙂 that sounds very interesting.

  3. I’m from Infanta, Quezon and never have I seen such engaging images from my province until I saw yours. Good photography. You can come up with your own book. Or have you done already?
