Before I totally forget: Belated congratulations to my artisan photographer Gregorio “Jhun” Dantes Jr. who captured the top prize of Climate Change Photo Essay Contest of 2008. He bested 899 entries and the European judges were shocked that he just used a Nikon FM2 film camera. Jhun had to literally whip-out his negatives infront of their wide eyes as evidence! His entry chronicles a vendors route in selling fish on the raft among the residents of an underwater community in Malabon. His secret: “Keep it simple sweetheart” (KISS)!
