Artist Statement

At the turn of the twentieth century, American colonial photographers cemented perceptions of the Philippines as an uncivilized and primitive society. United States colonial administrators of the Philippines created a visual narrative of White saviorism to justify American presence in the Philippines. In my project titled Field Notes, I engage with archival images made during the American colonial period of the Philippines and create collages that deconstruct and critique the colonial gaze.
