Manila, Then and Now as Seen at "Maynila, Kay Ganda" Photo Exhibit

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Home Credit Philippines CEO David Minol, together with the local Czech community, showcased the beauty of the old and new Manila in a photo exhibit launched recently in Makati. The photo exhibit featured the photographs by Prof. Teodulo Protomatir, considered the Father of Philippine Photography.

Below is Minol (left) showing Jaroslav Olša, jr., Czech Ambassador to the Philippines, old photos of Manila from a private collection that were included in the photo exhibit dubbed "Maynila, Kay Ganda" (Manila, How Beautiful). According to Minol, who organized the exhibit together with the local Czech community, they aimed to showcase the beauty of Manila, both past and present, to Filipinos and foreigners alike.

The exhibit, located in Pivo Praha in Makati, features photographs of pre- and post-war Manila taken by Protomartir. The photos are juxtaposed with photos taken by Jun Miranda, who reproduced Protomartir’s shots using modern-day Manila, resulting in a ‘before and after’ perspective.
