Photographer's Note

he plays banjo near the Manila Cathedral for some money. you'll easily notice him. he has this infectious smile and a very bright face, even though he haven't seen the light of day since birth.

i talked to him for a couple minutes and he told me stories of him and his wife - their life together, making a living in the streets by playing his banjo and living in a depressed area in the metro.

through all those stories, he carried this beautiful and honest smile along with a very positive attitude in life.

i guess you don't need to have seeing eyes to see that hope always looms in the horizon.
