One photo exhibit you should not miss

Posted in events by juned on the May 6th, 2008

I have been a fan of Ferdz’s travel snaps and this was before I met him in person. A visit to his blog IronWulf will tell it all. And I was lucky enough to be with him during the trip to Batanes. Ferdz really goes out of his way to get the “it” shot. He is patient and will literally trek to the most inaccessible spot to get the good shot. I mean to say he is devoted to his craft. I wont be surprised if I see him tied to the side of a mountain to get a good snap one of these days.

So Mr Ferdinand Decena aka Ferdz - blogger and photo blogger will be having an exhibit entitled Living by Water. The exhibit will run from May 12 to 27, 2008 at Filipinas Heritage Library in Ayala Triangle, Makati City.

Here are the details about the exhibit:

Living By Water is my First One-man show exhibit. I do hope you support by visiting the exhibit on the said dates (and sign in their guestbook). The Exhibit will be held on May 12-27, 2008 at Filipinas Heritage Library in Ayala Triangle, Makati City. More details inside.

UPDATE: May 5, 2008

Exhibit/ Gallery Schedule:
+ May 12 (Opening Night) 6-8 pm
+ Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday 9am - 6pm
+ May 24 9am - 4pm only

Thank you very much for the support and overwhelming response for this event. I really appreciate it.

From time immemorial, civilizations have thrived and lived near bodies of water. The reason is crystal-clear: water is vital to man’s existence. It is the reason why this exhibition pays homage to water and its significance to how and why people live by the water. Featuring photos that tell stories about the coastal Filipinos’ living conditions, reveal their culture, and relate their stories of survival.

The exhibit will carry a raft of striking images from across our archipelago. The Badjao Stilt Villages of Basilan. The Muslim Stilt Village of Rio Hondo in Zamboanga. The fishermen of Siquijor. The T’bolis of Lake Sebu. The rugged shores of Itbayat in Batanes. And the tranquil coasts of Iloilo.

Ferdinand is a travel photographer and award-winning blogger. A graduate of Fine Arts, Major in Advertising at the Far Eastern University, he got started on film photography during his college years. He worked as a graphic artist and web designer for three years, pursuing photography as a hobby.

Landing his first publication job as an Art Director enabled him to embark on a new career ? as a professional travel photographer. Getting his fair share of freelance jobs and assignments, his works eventually got published in a number of travel magazines both here and overseas.

His website En Route at, is the chronicle of his many travels and insightful photography. It has received recognition from the both local and international media.

With eager eyes, a curious mind and wandering feet, this young travel photographer and blogger plans to do an exhibit on Asian Heritage sites in the near future.
