What do these places have in common aside from each being an attractive city? Well, back in the 1890s, Dr. Jose Rizal, considered National Hero of the Philippines, visited these places. He was a jet-setter in his time. For sure, his visits to these charming places exposed him to different realities that also inspired him to dream of a free nation for the Filipinos - free from the shackles of the colonial masters. Made these quadruples (yes, four shots in a frame) as a tribute to Rizal's international travels by juxtaposing images of the hero with images of the old cities and Rizal's famous footsteps to martyrdom which can be seen in Fort Santiago, Intramuros and lastly with contemporary street vignettes from his hometown of Calamba. I hope someday I can also visit these places and more. Travel is such a great teacher.
