REMEMBERING PRESIDENT CORY AQUINO
REMEMBERING PRESIDENT CORY AQUINO On August 1, 2009, Filipinos all over the world mourn the death of former Philippine president Corazon Aquino. “Former President Corazon Aquino, who swept away a dictator with a “people power” revolt and then sustained democracy by fighting off seven coup attempts in six years, died on Saturday, her son said. She was 76.” – Associated Press I will never forget as a young high school seminarian at Don Bosco, and as an aspiring photojournalist, the first “editorial” photographs I took of a famous person in the Philippines was of President Aquino. I used the 110 mm camera my mother gave me to capture pictures of her. I wanted to share these images to all, which remain in one of my scrap books that I built when I was 16 years old.
