Fight Against Poverty by Dennis Pilapil

Currently unavailable for purchase

I went to a farm in Sariaya, Quezon [southern part of the Luzon region] and saw this boy. The expression on his face was definitely something I wanted to capture to depict the fight he and his family has against poverty.

It was hard to describe his living condition. How his family survives just to go through their daily sustenance. This hut is where his father will live to man the corn field of his landlord.
