Photo exhibit to feature ABS-CBNnews.com editor's works
MANILA – An upcoming exhibit at the Alliance francaise de Manille will feature photos taken by Fernando Sepe Jr., the deputy editor for multimedia of ABS-CBNnews.com.
Titled “Vanishing Point,” the exhibit will include Sepe’s 40 black and white photos documenting the travel from Pangasinan to Manila of ox-pulled carts containing handcrafted wood and basket-woven wares, which used to be commonplace in the Philippine capital.
It will open on October 29, with the event to be graced by Alliance francaise Foundation Paris secretary-general Jean-Claude Jacq.
The exhibit will run until November 28.
According to a statement released by Alliance francaise de Manille, “Vanishing Point” will be its first exhibit since renovations were made early this year.
The new Alliance now includes two extra floors to accommodate more classrooms for students learning the French language, a multi-purpose hall and a renovated theater.
“Vanishing Point fulfills an obligation to remember and reflect on the evolution of the urban space in Manila and its relation to the ‘rurality’ that constitutes its unique landscape,” said Patrick Deyvant, the new director of Alliance francaise de Manille.
“Vanishing Point” is curated by Susan de Guzman and Giselle Kasilag with the support of the Embassy of France to the Philippines and co-produced by Project Art.
