Philippines: Photographer's Haven in Manila

Senor Enrique in Philippines blogs about a project to turn a busy Manila Street into a photographer's haven. “Only a couple of months ago I posted an entry about an initiative by Jaime Chua along with the Hidalgo Business Organization to gentryfy R. Hidalgo Street — to relocate the street vendors that clog the entire strip and turn it into a photographers’ haven — a sprawling pedestrian’s promenade and at the same time promote the local photo industry, as well as attract a new wave of photography enthusiasts. It is now a reality!”
