The smile in her eyes was more arresting than the smile in her lips.
A daughter of a Boracay artist,
I first photographed Lorelei in 2003 when I spent my holidays in Boracay.
I didn’t know her then.
Neither did I know her family.
When I came back in 2005,
I headed straight to their shop and re-introduced myself.
And I saw her again. Now, a lot of people know Lorelei.
This picture has appeared in two international publications.
I am looking forward to 2007 when hopefully,
I can photograph her again.
