Moonshine





Hush, Mother says. Madeleine is sleeping. She is so beautiful when she sleeps, I do not want to wake her. The small sisters and brothers creep about the bed, their gestures of silence becoming magnified and languorous, fingers floating to pursed lips, tiptoes rising descending as if weightless. Circling about her bed, their frantic activity slows; they are like tiny insects suspended in sap, kicking dreamily before they crystallize into amber. Together they inhale softly and the room fills with one endless exhalation of breath: Shhhhhhh.

Richard of Fourth Estate interviewed me for their Blog. Click here. Fourth Estate features works from talented photographers around the world that needed the exposure they so deserve.   I am truly honored to be a part of this and I'm sorry if  my answers sound ridiculous. 
Thank you so much Richard.

The first photo was taken during one of our old shoot and afternoon road trip with my good friend  Marga and her friends. The second was also from an old shoot with my little sister, Alyanna at our backyard, one sunny afternoon in November of 2009.

Hey Shukura, Oh right, you are from England that's why a roll of film costs a lot. In Philippines it's a lot less than it'll cost you one there (I think). I hope the amount will leave you inspired to take beautiful photographs :]
Oh an izone. That's just lovely! Polaroid films are a pain to find these days especially in where I'm living. I think you maybe able to find one here http://www.the-impossible-project.com/

I believe it goes with the economic status of the country. haha. Oh, peaking of film, I just got one through right down the drain. I wasted the used 36 shots earlier just cause I forgot to press the button before rewinding. :[ Oh well.

Oh, let us talk about it on Facebook chat if you like. I do not use any instant messengers presently, but I am more active on Facebook. And while you're at it, a simple click of the Like button would be truly appreciated :]
