The New Cathedrals

From Alexander Supartono, Curator for Photoquai 2013 (Paris)

A freelance photographer with a diploma in Photojournalism from the Konrad Adenauer Centre for Journalism in Manila, Estan Cabigas, born in 1974, combines the language of social documentary with his interest in contemporary urban architecture. His ongoing study on social behavior and expressions of faith and spirituality in what he sees as The New Cathedrals in the Philippines is a metaphor for what consumerism and urbanity do to spirituality.
