Based in Manila, Phil Dizon got his first taste of photography as an exchange student in Colorado, assisting his foster dad with landscape shots. "Philippine Faces and Places" includes portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, and seascapes that exemplify the character of the Philippines and its people. For this project he says, "I traveled to iconic landmarks of the Philippines, as well as beautiful places that are less known. By incorporating the drama and majesty of these landscapes and pairing with dignified inhabitants of the locale, I aim to present the Philippines from my point of view."
