"The first time the exhibit was dedicated to a people who had experienced loss and misfortune but remained undaunted by challenges that could not quell an indominable spirit. I rededicate this second exhibit to all of us who continue to hope as we face these uncertain times..." -anna s.

Fukushima on My Mind
Haikus and Photographs

Anna Isabel C. Sobrepeña

September 9 - 30, 2020
On site at Gallery Nine, 4F Building A, SM Megamall.
Online until October 3, 2020.

The works in this exhibit were taken during a trip to Fukushima upon the invitation of the Japanese government. The program for journalists highlighted the rehabilitation of communities devasted by the triple disasters of an earthquake, tsunami and nuclear reactor spill. Japanese Ambassador to the Philippines Koji Haneda saw the photos taken from a phone camera and the idea of an exhibit was born. The exhibition, sponsored by Ambassador Haneda and former Philippine Ambassador to Japan Manuel M. Lopez was launched in Rockwell just before the lockdown. Now six months later, the exhibit makes its gallery debut.

The works were originally not for sale and intended as a private collection. However, these have now been made available to support the educational needs of school children in Marawi.
