I went to Benguet recently to continue my work on a photodocumentary on coffee farming community where organic Arabica are being grown and processed in the old traditional way. While at work with one of my subjects, this young girl grabbed my attention. She looks curious to what am I doing. Though she only speak in Ibaloi, one of the native tongue in the Cordillera, I tried to establish rapport by way of body language and gesture. And while a bit shy, she had managed to flash a beautiful innocent smile.


The good thing about Igorots is that they do not give a ny qualms about being photographed. They seem to be used to being subject and be part of the "drama" in photographer's world!

Great blog!
