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.
