Garovs and Ryan Vergara, the photographic duo behind the collab "Everywhere We Shoot" gives us a tour of their studio in Manila through a few of their favorite things.
Mimi Tecson was part of the international Artist-In-Residence program in Koganecho Bazaar (Yokohama, Japan) in 2012. Her three-month studio started August of that year. Here she recalls her project and muses about what it feels like looking back a year after.
Ernest Concepcion has been based in the United States since 2002 but has held strong ties with the artist communities in Manila even remotely. He returns to Manila every year and for 2012, he launched several projects in the span of three months. He sends us the wacky shots of this trip and the list of events he took Manila by storm with.
Louise Marcelino spent 6 months in South Korea and visited six main institutions - Changdong and Goyang Studios, Incheon Art Platform, Gyeonggi Creation Center, Nanji Art Studio, and Seoul Art Space Seongbuk - as part of her fellowship program. She guides us through the exhibitions, publications and activities she encountered in these spaces. Also, we get a glimpse of the structure of the residencies set up by some of these institutions.
Ray Potes has been a photographer for the past twenty years. He is also the publisher of Hamburger Eyes and the manager of Photo Epicenter. Eleven photos of his studio in Mission Street, California constellate in this entry.
Personal history and experiences inspire the works of Lyra Garcellano. Her photo-realistic portrayals reflect human vulnerabilities where figures are caught in mid-descent as if succumbing to the forces of gravity or sprawled on the floor in surrender. Singapore Tyler Print Institute granted Lyra a residency where she worked at the Institute from 16 - 27 May 2011. The artist takes us through her daily process of filtering ideas and engaging with the medium of printmaking.
Jenifer K Wofford's works frequently address intercultural exchange and discourse, often playing with notions of culture, difference, liminality or authenticity. She lets us in on a tour of her space during her period as the artist-in-residence at KINOKINO Art and Film Center from September to November 2011.
Lordy's work and drawings are heavily inspired from his own experiences, topography and map-making. He was kind enough to bring us to his studio through pictures he took himself.
