How Do I Love Thee?
Let me capture the ways.
The “How Do I Love Thee” exhibit will open on July 8, 2012 — 6 P.M. at The Love Yourself Hub located at 1850 Leon Guinto St., Malate, Manila (at the back of PWU).
Witness different photos focused on the male, mostly shot in black and white, photographed by Ian Felix Alquiros.
It took him 10 years in a call center industry before he shifted to photography. He decided to learn photography “to spend leisure time creatively”.
Ian studied photography at the Federation of Philippine Photographer’s Foundation (FPPF) and took up Studio Lighting Classes at Alcove Perspective at the Filipinas Heritage Library.
“I am a great believer of constant learning, from the very basic and to the most advanced skills in photography. From there, I continually create my own style that would reflect my brand of work,”
Just recently, he took a shot at Video Production classes at the UP Film Institute — a prelude to a possible future project in video and filmmaking. Among his inspirations in his still images are filmmakers, Lino Brocka and Wong Kar Wai.
“They are able to capture stories and drama through their moving images, I attempt to do the same with my photographs. Each attempt, for me, is a wonderful educational experience.”
Who would have thought that this “hobby” would eventually become a real profession for Ian?
Since his foray into the professional world of photography in 2007, Ian’s work has been labeled “ clean, sharp, sexy, cool, vivid, minimalist”. And in May 10, 2010 — Ian put up theROOM Photography and Event Studio in Panay Avenue, Quezon City.
“How Do I Love Thee” will be open to the public from July 9 to August 5, Monday – Sunday. Exhibit hours will be at 1 PM to 6 PM.
