Photographer's Note

The bamboo house is a study of Filipino culture and geography. Living in a tropical country, a house made of bamboo is a welcome refuge from the sweltering heat of the sun. (When I was growing up, my family had a bamboo house behind our concrete house and we all retreated there during summer.). Also, as bamboos abound in the 7,107 islands of the Philippines, the Filipino ingenuity displays different kinds of bamboo houses, some built in the land, others suspended on top of the trees, some floating in the water. The bamboo houses are part of Filipino's cultural identity.
