Hello everyone. I realized I hadn't posted anything for almost a week now. I intented to write a few days ago but because of health reasons, I wasn't able to. But I'm a bit better now, so I'll share with you a few photos from Southern Stories, an exhibit I attended at Heima Makati last Saturday, April 28th.
In collaboration with Heima, Charles Buenconsejo and Aleyn Comprendio's two-man show entitled, "Sea Sun and Sky" and "We’d Seen Each Other In A Dream", is an exhibit of analogue and film photography. The photographs revolve around their childhood, nostalgia, nature, honesty, and stories from the south. "Southern Stories" is the combined title of the two exhibits, much like a book with two sides with varying points of view. This exhibit also defines some of the themes of the current summer season for Heima.
I've been a silent fan of Aleyn's for quite some time now, and finally got to talk to her about a year or so ago. I'm still very much a big fan of everything she produces. So even though the exhibit was on the same day as a Sketchy's event, I knew where I had to be that night. I wouldn't miss seeing Aleyn's work in person for anything!

"Sea Sun and Sky". Some photos by Charles Buenconsejo. His work made me feel very nostalgic. In particular, the one above caught my attention the moment I went inside Heima.

Aleyn's work. So pretty! When I hear the words soft and dainty, Aleyn's photos are the first thing that come to mind. My personal favorite from Aleyn's work is Love, 1936 -- a series she shot solely with an Instax Wide.
