Kim Komenich Photography Exhibition in Davao and Ayala Museum

Abreeza Mall in Davao City and Ayala Museum, are presenting the traveling exhibition Revolution Revisited: A Photography Exhibition by Kim Komenich.

Revolution Revisited features selected images from a collection of over 24,000 photographs by American photojournalist Kim Komenich during the time of conflict and uncertainty in the Philippines almost three decades ago.

The full collection of photographs documenting this pivotal period of change in Philippine history is now under the care of the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to the 25-year old photographs are new photos by Komenich revisiting the people and places of his photographic essays and continues the ongoing story of Filipinos after twenty-five years.

This exhibition was launched at the Ayala Museum last February 21, 2011, with His Excellency President Benigno S Aquino III as Guest of Honor. It has since toured select Ayala Malls in Metro Manila (Greenbelt, Glorietta 4, Trinoma and Market, Market) and Marquee Mall in Pampanga.

For its Visayas leg, the exhibition has traveled to three Cebu sites, namely Ayala Center Cebu, University of San Carlos Museum and the Sacred Hard School-Ateneo de Cebu. It has also traveled to University of St. La Salle in Bacolod, Negros Occidental, and in Museo Iloilo in Iloilo City. The Abreeza show will be the first Mindanao stop of the Revolution Revisited traveling exhibition.

In bringing Revolution Revisited nationwide, it is the aim of the exhibition to provide the public with a visually engaging experience of these historic moments and to hopefully reinvigorate their sense of national solidarity and pride in being Filipino.
