Picket Lines


2015 seems to be the year for closure with unfinished projects. Three years ago, I was invited by Kooky Tuason and Marty Tenco to be one of the make-up artists for a coffee table book that celebrated women and poetry.

Working with the professional make-up artists I was paired with for the shoots, it still amazes me that Kooky and Marty took a chance on a hobbyist like me. Half the time, I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing, but hey, the photos turned out great. 😛

These are the incredible women I had the privilege of meeting and working with:

Roxanne Barcelo | Dr. Stephanie Cherryl Hipos-Supan | Llena Tan-Arcenas
Sae, Hazel, Bern, & Rae | Bayang Barrios| Lydia Buendia, ED.D Kate Torralba
Marnelli Puyot | Karen Kunawicz | Venus F. Padile | Johanna &Tonichi

Picket Lines: Dialogues Between Eves, Among Eves and For Eves was launched last week and is available at Php750. To purchase a copy, please email mina@yonzon.com. Part of the proceeds will be given to Women’s Crisis Center Manila.

I’d intended to post this on International Women’s Day, but got lazy. So, Happy Women’s Month! 😀
