About Gem


Contact: GemIsMyName AT gmail DOT com


I am an explorer and documenter of the urban landscape, of late, focusing on Manila, Philippines. My main areas of interest are in the language of architecture and structures, how urban artifacts shape their surroundings, typography, graffiti, signs, and transportation.

Before 2007, I photographed the balmy nights, blazing neon, and rural landscape of Southern Taiwan.
