Ang Ikalawa Magazine
2020, Magazine

Ang Ikalawa or “the second” is a collection of stories from the next generation of Filipinos in NYC. They talk about their family’s experiences of migrating from the Philippines to New York and offer advice for the next generation of young Filipinos. I had a studio set up to interview and take photos of everyone, but due to the global pandemic, in-person photoshoots and interviews were not feasible. I thought about how we communicated with family back in the Philippines via video chat and used that to photograph people.

One Small Girl
2019, Children’s Book

Personal project on a children’s book loosely based on the Tony Award winning musical, Once on this Island. Used elements from the staging of the musical by using recycled materials and finding art in trash. Each page was created on a diorama using real sand, recycled fabric and plastic plants from home. Each diorama was then photographed and edited using Photoshop and arranged in InDesign.
