“What is the future of Pintados?”
Photographer’s note: F/1.4, 1/8000, ISO 100, Nikon D800E, Nikkor AFD 85mm 1.4
This is probably what the boy was thinking. A participant of the Pintados Kasadyaan Festival, he must also have some thoughts running through his mind on where the festival will be in the years to come. Amidst the political uncertainties and upcoming elections, the question seems to linger more. Or probably he is just too young to carry this question in his head?
As a photographer who has been shooting this festival for as long as I had my first DSLR… it makes me think. Where is the festival heading? The street parade was stopped in the middle of the streets in 2011. This year, it has been limited only to stage performances at the grounds of the Grandstand. Next year, will we see a street parade again? Will it still be in the Grandstand for the stage performances? Or is it never gonna be the same again?
