  • This ongoing series is inspired by the song of the late Filipino singer/songwriter Francis Magalona entitled Kaleidoscope World.

    This series illustrates the stanzas of the song by looking at our world through a kaleidoscopic lens.

    Kaleidoscopic World: Quiapo, Manila

    Quiapo was choosen to be one of the first places to include in this series. Because of it’s crowded streets and diverse mixture of cultures.

    In quiapo people from all walks of life mingle. From fortune-tellers to high priests, from sidewalk vendors to barangay policemen, from mosques to churches, from foreigners to broadcasters, and many more they all walk the streets of quiapo.

    Just as the song goes:

    “Every color and every hue
    Is represented by me and you
    Take a slide in the slope
    Take a look in the kaleidoscope
    Spinnin' round, make it twirl
    In this kaleidoscope world”
