Ang Langyaw featured in Philippine Daily Inquirer

I got featured at the Philippine Daily Inquirer issue of 17 May 09

I got featured at the Philippine Daily Inquirer issue of 17 May 09, Sunday Lifestyle Travel section, page H-4

It’s not always that one gets to be interviewed and featured at the same time in the Philippines’ widest circulating broadsheet, the Philippine Daily Inquirer but yesterday, 17 May 09, at the Sunday Lifestyle Travel section, it finally appeared, almost full page.

I was first sent a text message by a former coworker from Public Affairs last year who told me that a writer of the broadsheet, Angge Goloy, was interested to interview me. She saw one of my mountaineering photos, blown up and hung at the department’s meeting room, asked about it and learned about me. A few months later, we were seated at Figaro in Shangrila Mall. Yesterday morning, while I was in transit to Cebu from Cagayan de Oro on a slow moving Trans-Asia ship, she texted me that it finally went to press. Presto! I just got really excited.

Well, the article really is a brief history of my career change plus some info. It was placed under the Travel section, which, well, good. It not only discussed this new phase of my life but includes my beetle collecting endeavor too.

There were some slight errors but not big enough to change things but I should correct these:

  • I wasn’t able to update her about the Jakarta Biennale XIII 2009 which was postponed
  • The name of Fr. Galenda should be Fr. Galende
  • The output of the Singapore International Photography Festival Southeast Asian Workshop is not the Mapping Invisible Cities work which was a separate exhibition and has been on tour within the region since last year.

For those of you who have missed the print version, check it online.

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.
