Bantayan Island 6 Months after Yolanda
6 Months have passed since Yolanda hit the northern region of the Philippines central Visaya, people are still living in emergency tents, rubble still lines the streets and there are few organisations helping on the remote island of Bantayan where an estimated 85% of infrastructure was completely destroyed. In April 2014 I stayed with locals on the island that was cut off from the rest of the world for more than a week after the typhoon, which even now has limited access to materials resources and proper long term aid. My intention for this body of work is to tell the intimate story about a specific selection of people, both victims and aid workers, return to the UK and fundraise.
