FPPF Mentors Gather to Form A Symphony of the Arts

Date Posted: Mar 30, 2010 at 05:46:45 AM

The Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF) is a group composed of photographers who not only work as such but teach others as well through their Intramuros classes. What many people don’t know is that its members still pick up something else other than their cameras—brushes, paints, and canvas.


So it was in great delight that six photographers and artists in their own right opened the FPPF Mentors’ Creative Symphony, an exhibit mixing two branches of the visual arts into one event. The exhibit opened at the Adamson University Art Gallery in the afternoon of February 8, one of the activities to serve as the opening salvo of the 78th Foundation Day celebrations.


FPPF professors George Cabig, Cecilia S. Angeles, Rod Banzon, Joey Tañedo, Vic Sison, and Lito de Guzman showed that there is more to them than their lenses. From oil paintings to “digipainting,” their bodies of work show greatly differing styles and forms.


As they put it in their Exhibit Notes, the FPPF mentors “deserve to isolate themselves” and indulge in their other interests. The exhibit “is not a relief from the teaching pressures from the photo seminars throughout the year, for they do not feel these. This exhibit is simply to share what other fine enjoyment the versatile FPPF mentors have.”


The opening of the exhibit was graced by Fr. Gregg Bañaga Jr., C.M. and other university officials. Other colleagues of the mentors from the FPPF were also present.


The exhibit ran until March 8. The AdU Art Gallery is open Mondays to Fridays, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Yael Esperat
