Throwback exhibit. Photographer Sonny Camarillo with former President Fidel V. Ramos
PHOTOJOURNALIST Sonny Camarillo, past president of the Press Photographers of the Philippines and The Camera Club of the Philippines, will hold a photo exhibit titled “Edsa 1986 Before & Beyond Dapat Na Ba Ito Kalimutan” to commemorate the 31st anniversary of the Edsa People Power revolt.
The photo exhibit, presented by Ayala Land Inc., the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office and Camerahaus, will be shown at the UP Town Center from Feb. 22 to March 7.
The first part will show the rise of Ferdinand Marcos to the presidency, his vision for a new society, the distribution of wealth and a larger middle-class Filipino families.
The photo exhibit, which is also sponsored by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp., the Fil-Estate Management Corp., JRS Express, Balikbayan Handicrafts and CWC Corp. will showcase the making of the 1986 Edsa People Power revolt.
Also likewise included were the administrations of Presidents Fidel Ramos, Joseph Estrada, Gloria Arroyo, Benigno Aquino III and Rodrigo Duterte. Camarillo has been presenting these exhibits since 1987.
Camarillo said he was inspired by comments from viewers to continue showing his “magnificent awesome photographs” and continue presenting our history like what the students of FEU Institute of Technology said.
“It’s nice to see how our fight for democracy are shown through these pictures, like a short movie film that depicts exactly and accurately what really transpired before. We hope that this kind of visual presentation will continue year after year so that younger generations will have the true knowledge what the Edsa revolt meant for the Filipino people and the world that adopted it,” he said.
