This is an essay made in March through April, 2016 in the Philippines called “Manila Before Duterte” as it was made just before Rodrigo Duterte became president in June of that year.

This photo essay was featured in The New Yorker Photo. For a week in May 2018 I took over New Yorker´s photography instagram with this essay.
