South Pacific Photo Workshop Collections
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
This collection features select images by participants in the South Pacific Photo Workshop that focus on the daily life and landscapes of Negros Oriental, a province in the Central Visayan Islands of the Philippines. Subject matter ranges from the exotic to the sublime, and the resulting photographs are rare and fleeting moments in time.
Workshop participants strive to capture the essence and dignity inherent in the people and places of Negros Island. The resulting photographs show what’s good, what’s bad, what we must accept and what we can change. We teach empowerment through visual imagery.
The South Pacific Photo workshop is a cooperative venture between Foundation University, a non-profit institution of learning in Dumaguete City, and The Perfect Exposure Gallery in Los Angeles. Proceeds from the sale of catalogue images will be partly used to fund workshop scholarships and visual arts programs at Foundation University.
