A Manileño does not live by bread alone, but by every word from the Quiapo Church. Of which, is client to the renowned Maglaqui’s Religious Sculptured Works.
Of which, Tadz is an artisan.
Eduardo “Tadz” Galera, 54, of San Luis Pampanga. The main man in “Tatay Tadz.” A photo essay by Ateneo Sta. Ines, Adrian Madrazo and yours truly, for the 2016 FUJIFILM Philippines Global Photowalk competition themed “Working Fathers.”
The impromptu project spotlights a day in a life of this regular breadwinner; the man behind the finishing touches of noted santero Gener Maglaqui’s religious sculptures.
Here is the photoessay as penned by Adrian Madrazo. We walked away with the prize on this one. Outshining 39 other entries nationwide.
Thanks Adrian. So hell-bent in collecting the photographs..in the middle of a blasted internet connection. Here’s to your persistence!
Thanks Ka Teni. For taking a pass on the SP workshop and opted to join us instead. To your faith in the team!
Thanks Tatay Tadz. You’ve just carved our names in the cyber-halls of Fujifilm.
