MONØkult Submission: Jing Calonge
“Presence in Absence”
About the Project
This work is a collection of photos with non-human elements. As someone who is NOT a natural when it comes to interacting with people, I find inanimate things as something I can more easily work with on photography. Mundane as it may seem, these ordinary things have something special in them, if we look closer and pay more attention. It’s like they have souls of their own, each one telling a different story of their life is and what it’s been.
About the Photographer
Jing Calonge is an environmental specialist from the Philippines. Travel and photography are two of her favorite things. She considers traveling as the best way to discover not just the world but to learn of oneself. Being in a work setting built around science and objectivity, photography provides her with a creative outlet. For her, photography is like taking a vacation. It relaxes her, it kickstarts her creativity, it opens up new perspectives and allows her to come back to reality feeling recharged.
