For two months, I will be documenting the work of the Justice Makers team in Manila. Rommel and his team work with various prisons and court systems working to improve prison conditions throughout the city. It’s obvious I’ll be busy – in my first week, I’ve visited a courthouse, two prisons, and the Justice Makers headquarters.
Through photos, audio and video, I will explore the problems being addressed, their causes, and the innovations that the Justice Makers team has implemented to resolve these issues.
Here is a collection of panoramas and candid street shots documenting everyday life in Manila. These pictures document the beauty of the people and the city that I am in, but also touch on some of the problems faced here, from traffic congestion, to pollution, to poverty.
