We thanked the Lord this Sunday morning at the Chapel of Sto. Nino Paz in Greenbelt, Ayala Center, Makati.
Then few steps from the chapel is Greenbelt 5 Fashion Walk where the exhibit of photographer Mark Nicdao called Alive was held. Although it looked like that his photo show is over, but since it’s still there, we still got the chance to see it.
Those black & white photos of local celebrities in more than 6 feet each were really amazing. Some photos really deserved a second or even a third look.
Phoemela Baranda is effortlessly sexy…
Sarah Geronimo is blooming muse of her generation.
I can even hear her gorgeous voice echoes from her photo…
It’s simply surreal…
My wife Tina was struck with Jake Cuenca’s photo.
His scar on his upper lip was clearly apparent, perhaps the photographer wanted to capture everything without pretentions…
Ms. Tessa Prieto-Valdes in her element. Flamboyant but natural in her photo…
I like her when she said in one of her inteviews that she also goes to Baclaran & Divisoria for shopping..
Regine Velasquez looks like a true goddess in her photo.
Aint no music note high enough for a venus-looking diva like Regine…
While Enchong Dee proves he’s in true athletic form as swimming is his second skin.
KC Concepcion’s photos beside Jericho’s. Their photos exude emotions.
Goma’s photo beside Regine’s…
And my son Gabby was instructed by Tina to goof around Sarah G.’s photo as if he’s trying to win or at least kiss her. We wish!
I confess that beside being a violinist or a chef, a lens-man’s work like that of Mark Nicdao is also one of my frustrations. If only I had not went through studying human life & diseases, I would have an Alive-like exhibit as well.
Everything happens for a reason.
At least I’m happy with what I’m doing. Really.
STRENGTH. BALANCE. PASSION according to Mr. Nicdao’s one man show will keep us all ALIVE.
