Remember When

With the prodding of good friend Cris, I dragged my butt out of bed and joined him at Tatay Rene Lumawag’ s photo exhibit at the SM City last Saturday. Majority of Tay Rene’s photos were in black and white and most of them were of historical events that would make one candidly reminisce the past, whether happy or sordid. I especially liked the Pikit bakwit photo he took and the one with the many faces of Digong and also, the one of the San Pedro church bombing. 30 images that speak about Tatay Rene’s love of his art.

The exhibit opened on November 12, the 5th death anniversary of

his son Gene Boyd who was gunned down on November 12, 2004, as he was returning from shooting the sunset at the pier in Jolo, Sulu.

Lumawag’s exhibit of 30 images of Davao/Mindanao history in the last 25 years, provide the viewer glimpses of historical events that some people may have forgotten or chosen not to remember.


THE Tatay Rene

Visit the exhibit at the SM Entertainment Center till the 17th.

Peace & Light!
