The Developing Nations Project was launched a couple months ago. Being a photographer, I already had most of the gear I needed to get the project off the ground.
I purchased a compact Canon Selphy CP-800 photo printer, so that I would not have to rely on being able to find a photo development shop while carrying out the project. Especially considering that a big aspect of the project is developing photos for people in remote areas that might not have access to development facilities.
Today I rented a motorbike with my friend Amanda. We drove off away from the main town of Coron to see where the road would take us. We made a few stops along the way to snap photos of those interested in hopping in front of the camera.
Here are their photos. Tomorrow we plan to deliver the prints.
A couple days after taking the last batch of photos just outside of Coron, Philippines. I went to drop off the prints. Upon doing so I met a lovely couple (who I hadn’t photographed previously) who invited me in for coffee. I had brought my portable photo printer with me so I made them a couple prints on the spot.
I was driving a motorbike back to Cebu after an overnight trip to Oslab, Philippines.
On the way back I got a flat tire and pulled off to get it patched. Since I had some time to kill while the shop was patching it, I pulled out my gear and took some portraits of the workers as well as some passer-by’s including some of their pets.
