last week had us on the other side of the globe, thirteen time zones away from home.
we spent the week in the philippines (cebu + manila!) documenting the work of a start-up company who are working with photographers and also looking to make a difference in the lives and communities of those in the philippines and hoping to start to change what it looks like when nations work together to provide meaningful employment, create opportunity, and give people ways to flourish. i’m sat here back home and really still can’t believe we got to go!
a lot of firsts for me : first time in asia. first time on an airplane (middle seat) for 13 + hours. first time getting to help a company think about what their story is and how to share it with the world. there were times i felt incapable and out of my depth…. but also times when i was amazed at what was happening around me. the people that i met were so incredibly kind, welcoming, giving and open. always smiling, and a blast to sing karaoke with. :)
// the images above are some we shared via instagram while we were away… it’s been a while since we’ve been posting to instagram regulary, but that is for another post! if you’d like to follow along with our day to day adventures via instagram, we are @jenniferstark & @davejstark! //2
