Flip Side (2007)

“Flip Side” (2007) is a series of portraits of ten Filipino youth activists. The title playfully refers to “Flip” a slang nickname for Filipino but also to the work’s dual format. One side of each banner features an image of a young member against a blue sky, while on the other side, their shadows are shown against a brick wall. Their gazes demand attention, compelling us to engage with each of them, not only as members of a community but also as unique individuals.
