“I was 19; it was only me and my camera,” shares street and documentary photographer Xyza Cruz Bacani at the opening of Manila House’s Changing the Narrative series, staged in partnership with FTW Foundation.

Those present at the event took the opportunity to ask Bacani about new projects in the pipeline. The fundraising event was hosted by Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala and all proceeds were for the benefit of FTW Foundation, which aims to support and empower unemployed and underemployed Filipinos.
