Photographer's Note

This is part of a series of pictures of my stay in Miarayon, Bukidnon, Mindanao with the Tala-andig people: Miarayon and the Tala-andig

* * *

The school uniform of the pre-school classes are based on traditional Tala-andig designs.

Attempts are continuing to introduce more cultrural elements in school to provide the young with a sense of their own history and way of life. However these attempts have to compete with TV, and missionary elements in the community. One positive is that the language, Binukid, is still the lingua franca of the community--but with this they also have to learn Visayan to do business with the outside communities, Tagalog to understand what's being said on TV, and English classes, which doesn't have any immediate use.

With this shot I wanted to try something different in the PP. I went for a higher contrast, higher saturated image. Does it work?
