“Mang Urot” is the pseudonym of a Filipino who offers a soup kitchen three times a week to anyone who wants to come to eat, as well as assorted side projects, like bringing supplies to schools or offering free dental work to the poor. Recently he’s attracted volunteers from various organizations. On July 4, we took a trip to a small backwoods village to donate supplies to the elementary school and the church.
This is a recent interview with a gifted Filipino photographer who talks about how he got into photography, advice he passes on to students and apprentices and digital versus. He also shares some great photos.
