Global Warming

I have always been drawn to the water. As someone who lives in a country surrounded by the sea, I have naturally gravitated to photographing water as a recurring theme in my images.

Most of my personal best with Fujifilm were taken in different bodies of water. I am always in awe that it signifies and gives life to the people around it.

In my recent project with Fujifilm, I wanted to go back and photograph the water, but this time to explore the effects of Climate Change. The Philippines is one of the countries most vulnerable to Climate Change, thanks in part to its location in the western part of the Pacific Ocean.

In this project, I shot in Artex Compound also known as “Venice of Malabon”, where a community thrives despite being submerged in water.

Artex is located in Malabon, about 45 minutes drive away from Manila. It has been submerged in water for almost 15 years.

In the short period of time that I was there, testing the new GFX 50R, I was overwhelmed on how the locals go on with their day-to-day life despite their current situation.

According to recent research more than 167,000 hectares of coastland or about 0.6% of the country’s total area are projected to go underwater in the Philippines due to global warming. Source: International Development Research Centre (IDRC)

Global warming can cause a whole chain of events that rupture ecosystems, weather patterns, and ultimately, communities. I hope that by capturing these images, I can help spread awareness to the effects of global warming and the risks it pose to our communities.
