Journalist Jing Magsaysay holds photo exhibit in Makati
The exhibit, called 'Stories of Light,' runs from September 18 to 28 in a pop-up gallery at 8 Rockwell

The following is a press release from Galerie Stephanie.

Veteran photographer and journalist Jing Magsaysay is holding a photo exhibit entitled “Stories of Light” from September 18 to September 28 in Makati City.

“I’ve been a storyteller all my life,” said Magsaysay. Beginning his storied career as a radio DJ, he went on to enter the field of TV and news in 1981, working for and eventually becoming head of the ABS-CBN News Channel, and later on starting what was then Solar News. Today, despite being retired from the business, his endless curiosity and thirst for new experiences has continued to bring him new adventures. His second solo photography exhibition, “Stories of Light,” is a visual epic, a testament to Magsaysay’s self-taught skill in telling stories through the use of life, space, and light.

The beauty of life and nature that is visible in the everyday – from the smell of grass after it rains to small spider webs glistening with overnight dew drops – fuels Magsaysay’s curiosity and drive to discover novelty in overlooked details. In crafting his particular style of landscape photography, Magsaysay looks for powerful contrasts in light, preferring strong light and dark values that produce bold colors and textures. They represent life’s ever-present dualities – “intensity and serenity, confusion and clarity, doubt and certainty,” emotions that are present during our most trying times.

“Stories of Light,” an exhibition of 21 photographs by Magsaysay, continues in the grand tradition of human historiography – an intimate yet universal log of man and nature ascribed in a medium that people of any race or culture can understand.

The Artist Reception will be held on Saturday, September 23, at 4 pm at Galerie Stephanie’s pop-up gallery at the lobby of 8 Rockwell, Plaza Drive corner Hidalgo Drive, Rockwell Center, Makati City.
