Last February 2006, six photographers set out on a mission to capture the beauty of the Batanes Islands. (While researching the trip, good photos of Batanes were scarce on the net so most of us didn't know what to expect. We did hear that it was an incredibly beautiful place, a place like no other in the Philippines.)
We spent 4 days and 3 nights shooting non-stop...sunrises, sunsets, and everything in-between. We came away with photographs that prove Batanes is truly an awesome destination.
And although we traveled and shot together, each one had a different take of the places we visited, a different perspective of the very same sights. Through our images we hope to share Batanes with you, from six different points-of-view... Enjoy.
(The photographic expedition's guide was master photographer Noli Gabilo, an Ivatan who lives in Batanes. He can be reached at +63 917 351 5355 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
