Filipino Migrant Employee Spends 10 Years Photographing Hong Kong On Her Days Off And Wins Prestigious Scholarship


style=”text-align: justify;”>27 12 months outdated home employee Xyza Cruz Bacani, a migrant employee from the Philippines, grew to become well-known for her road pictures of Hong Kong, the place she travels to work. Her darkish and gritty pictures even earned her the Magnum Basis’s Human Rights Fellowship for 2015, which can permit her to take an intensive six week (fastened -ed.) images research in New York and use her information to enhance human rights in her personal nation.

style=”text-align: justify;”>Xyza‘s pictures already take care of vital subjects within the Philippines. Her work documenting the lives of ladies in abused home employee shelters helped catch the attention of the Magnum Basis, and for a great purpose. The Philippines are a giant nation with poor people who find themselves compelled to search for work elsewhere, and lots of of them change into migrant employees that journey to Hong Kong.

style=”text-align: justify;”>Xyza’s pictures show that work doesn’t at all times present folks with the salvation they count on.
