Eric Kim arrived in Manila last week and have been enjoying shooting at the streets of Manila. He was with Filipino street photographers during the Feast of the Black Nazarene.

I just love this next photo of Luis Liwanag, Eric Kim and Leanne Jazul doing Gangnam style dance. In this photo by Maureen Santos is a picture one of my dreams of the Phiippine street photography scene being united dancing together even though their interpretation of SP might be different. Funny scene but it’s quite symbolic for me.

Eric Kim was even interviewed and appeared in the flash news of ABS-CBN.

The workshop is organized by Litratista sa Daan in collaboration with Lightroom Corporation and Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc.
