Philippines: jeepney barker
I spent three months in the Philippines in 2009, working for UNICEF in the aftermath of Typhoon Ketsana. Manila is a city of contrasts, most notably between the rich and poor. Makati, the business district, comes alive at night when the call centres open. Workers throng the streets, food is sold on every corner and brightly decorated ‘jeepneys’ speed up and down the streets, picking people up and dropping them off apparently at random. Here are some of my favourite photos from the Philippines.
