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, my portfolio site.

  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 😉
