“Palengke”

5

Marketing duties at the Pasong Tirad Wet Market in Makati City.

This small wet market is a few blocks away from where I live. This market serves 3 hungry communities – Brgy. Tejeros, Brgy Olympia, and Brgy. Sta. Cruz. It opens as early as as 4:30 am so better be ready to have first dibs for freshest catch from as far as Baguio up north. Veggies, fish, meat and dry goods are readily available in this wet market. You’ll find almost anything in this “palengke” and the selling prices are way cheaper than the posh supermarket groceries around. But be sure not to go at 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm – they’re closed. This short siesta time is usually observed by the early risers to rest, recharge, relax, watch TV and catch up with the other sellers. I come here for the fresh clams and mussels which I heartily put in my pasta.

    Storytelling with Petzvals: Alex Timmermans and the Art of Collodion

    Not long after Alex Timmermans purchased his first digital camera at the turn of the century, he quickly realized the trappings of digital photography couldn't fulfill his personal photographic desires. He then began searching for a more challenging process — one that wasn't so predictable. His journey eventually landed him back at the roots of analogue photography, specifically employing the wet plate collodion process using original Petzval lenses. This antique photographic process found in him a renewed inspiration and has since become his passion, which is evident in both his words and his images.
