MANILA - Filipino landscape and fine art photographer Paul Resurrecion has captured some of the Philippines' iconic wonders.

Resurrecion's works will be featured in a photo exhibit dubbed as "The Philippines: Postcards from Paradise" from June 10 to 19 at the Diplomatic Club in Tehran, Iran.

The exhibit features the photographer's well-loved interpretations of the Mt. Mayon in Bicol province, the beaches of Baler in Aurora and the chocolate Hills in Bohol.

His new full-color photographs of the isolated hills and beaches of Batanes, intricacy of the rice terraces of Sagada, the sprawling shorelines of Ilocos and the mystic of the many waterfalls of Mindanao will be also shown in the exhibit.

A member of the Camera Club of the Philippines, Resurrecion has had his works presented and exhibited internationally in Ho Chi Min City in Vietnam, and more recently, in South Africa.

“The Philippines: Postcards from Paradise”, which will be exhibited alongside the UNESCO World Heritage Exhibit, is sponsored by the Philippines Foreign Service Posts in the Middle East and African Region through Eduardo Martin R. Menez, Ambassador of the Philippines to Iran.

The exhibit is organized by over-all project director Stanley Perry Fernandez with the support of Consul Maynard Maleon of the Philippine Embassy in Syria.
