Langyaw is Editor’s Choice in National Geographic

My photo (top) as editor's choice in the National Geographic Magazine May 2010 issue

Finally, it’s out: the May 2010 issue of the National Geographic Magazine where my image of a flagellant preparing his tukarol is published. The caption reads:

Estan Cabigas Talisay City, Philippines

On Good Friday in the Philippine town of Infanta, this Roman Catholic flagellant donned a floral headress called the “tukarol.” Cabigas, 36, captured his image while documenting Holy Week practices for a school assignment.

This photo is part of a story that I did for my Diploma in Photojournalism course at the Konrad Adenauer Asian Center for Journalism at the Ateneo de Manila University. Check out my slideshow.

Thanx to Nomadic Pinoy for sending me this scanned page. I’m still awaiting delivery of my copy.

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.
