On the Road in Mindanao

Surigao, Mindanao, Philippines

I’m back in Mindanao and wanted to share some images from the past few days. I have been here looking to photograph some of the indigenous peoples in the northern region of the island, and it has proven to be somewhat difficult. Despite one very disappointing day we were able to find a small Mamanwa community that allowed us to photograph them. I won’t go into detail here about the difficulties, but it basically involves the tribes wanting a significant amount of money to let us document them. I have had very gracious hosts the past few days in Bayabas, Surigao del Sur. Thank you Jude and Babie for all of your hospitality and planning. Tomorrow I will be meeting my wife and kids here and we will be traveling to Siargao Island for some relaxation and a wedding. I’m going to make this a short post as I really just wanted to share some images from the past few days. I have added captions to all the images to help give a little information about each, just hover over each picture.
