PRASOONA NADH, Medical Student, DMSF
Portraits by Jojie Alcantara
It was a long overdue collaboration. She got in touch with me two years ago for a photo shoot, our only link of communication via Facebook. Since then, I have captured several Indian friends' portraits. She on the other hand, have practiced her poses with skilled photographers, makeup artists and designers.
An Indian studying as a medical student in Davao Medical School Foundation, Prasoona and I finally met this year. Built tall and shapely, I made her play with the camera until you forget she was a fragile giant in front of you.
Transformation was what she wanted, and she got it. Hair and makeup courtesy of her good friend, Mae Ann Cortez.
