- From Harvey Chua, Photographer, Manilla, The Philippines- "Hi Tony, Thanks for sending us updates about you, and other photographers - especially those who attend your classes and seminars.
I'm sending you a copy of one of our local newspapers that did a story on our advocacy - Photography with a Difference. My AB Photography students at the College of Saint Benilde photographed 20 children with cancer under the care of Kythe Foundation. To prepare the students for this project, we conducted workshops on children and family portraiture, as well as an orientation lecture on how to relate with or handle children with cancer. A local mall, SM Supermalls, provided the children's families with gift certificates so they could buy color coordinated clothes for the portrait session, while Canon Philippines brought Selphy printers so that the families could receive instant prints. The entire project - to be done within a year - would serve 200 children, and will be handled by various student photographers all over the country. A photo exhibit, called "Colors of Hope" will be held at SM at the end of next month.

I have also attached a portrait of one of the children by Apple Villalobos, a graduating AB photography student.
