I came to Cebu island in the Philippines to photograph a book on the beach life
as an assignment from a Philippino business woman who also ran the local newspaper.
The book was never published but I did all the photos and spent a very happy time there.
Keeping an illustrated scrapbook was a convenient way to remember and edit what I was shooting.
No digital nor polaroids.
