New photo project on Filipino Care Givers and Nannies around the UK

James Pogson, a London-based British-Filipino photographer, wrote in to publicise his new project. Feel free to drop him a note if you’re interested in helping out.

Dear Phil-UK readers, my name is James Pogson, I’m a Brit/Filipino artist Photographer based in London. I received the 2008 Jerwood Photography Award and I’m currently exhibiting work throughout the UK and have been featured in several magazines.

I’m beginning a new photographic portrait project on Filipino Care Givers and Nannies around the UK. The work is a personal project that I hope will promote Filipino culture throughout the UK, especially within the Arts. For this, I need as many participants as possible to make this work, and I’m asking for your help. If you are a Care Giver or Nanny, or know of someone who is, please get in touch. My email address is jamespogson@gmail.com

Palawan

By Richard Reyes, July 2001
"One of the first things that struck me about Palawan when I first arrived was how amazingly clean and tidy it was. The drive from the airport to the capital city of Puerto Princessa you couldn’t see a single piece of rubbish on the floor, not a can, a bottle or even a cigarette butt. In fact there were no people smoking or drinking on the streets, this was only allowed in the privacy your own home, bars, or restaurants. Whatever laws that had been passed by the local Government was certainly working – Palawan is the cleanest, peaceful, law abiding Island I have ever been to in the Philippines, it is just one of the things that set it apart from anywhere else. Having been here once you are bound to come back again and again, guaranteed – already I have been to Palawan three times."
