George Tapan Holds “Abot-Tanaw” Photo Exhibit Using Epson Printing Technologies

Wazzup Pilipinas!

As one of the original Epson PRO, an eminent group of photographers and graphic artists in the Philippines, distinguished Filipino photographer George Tapan has been a long-time Epson user, and considers Epson as part of his family.

Thus, he now showcases the diversity of Filipino tribes in his latest exhibit displaying photos printed using Epson printers. The exhibit entitled “Abot-Tanaw ni George Tapan” is being held at the National Museum of Anthropology located at the Old Finance Building along Finance Road, Ermita, Manila. The exhibit was unveiled last June 19, and will run Tuesdays to Sundays from 10 AM to 5 PM until August 16.

“For this exhibit, I used Epson scanners and printers, because in my eye, Epson produces the nearest natural color. The right color, archival ink, and the variety of paper or media to choose from is why I chose Epson as a partner for exhibits, including this one. For the “Abot-Tanaw” exhibit at the National Museum, I used Epson’s archival paper that produces no glare, to help me showcase the beauty of the subjects and photographs without using an encasing glass.”

“Abot-Tanaw ni George Tapan” features the diverse culture of the Philippines as shown by the different indigenous tribes around the country. The subject matter is close to his heart, as showing recognition to these indigenous tribes is part of his personal advocacy. “We should never forget the indigenous people; we should show them respect and give them dignity. Without them, there is no us,” he elaborated. 

His many years of traveling in all parts of the country have yielded a wealth of images showing the very essence of Filipino tribal life. “For me, a good photograph captures the spirit of each tribe. Although I give directions and make plans before capturing the images to remove the distractions from the environment, I make sure that the image is very natural,” he explained. “I also scan and give them a copy of their own photographs, as they believe that taking photos can steal their souls. By sharing these with them, I make them happy and they feel that I care about their beliefs. My small Epson printer and scanner have helped me do that.”

As George Tapan’s digital imaging partner for “Abot-Tanaw”, Epson Philippines Corporation (EPC)
used the Epson SureColor SC-P607 – a reliable photo printer that delivers true quality, unprecedented black density, and true-to-life color gradations and definitions – and Watercolor radiant white art paper and Premium Glossy Photo paper to print the exhibit photographs.

“Epson is glad to be a part of this demonstration of Filipino talent. As a distinguished member of the crème de la crème of Filipino photographers, George Tapan’s eye for detail has given the world a new perspective. And as his partner in highlighting this part of our culture, Epson is glad to have the technology to give justice in realizing the finer points and overall life-like image reproduction of his photos. After all, the beauty of the Philippines deserves only the best prints,” said Pamela Albar, Head of Epson’s Commercial & Industrial Department.
