Faces of Ati-atihan 2011


.          You have to admire the painstaking work that goes to every costume and make-up of the participants in the Ati-atihan parade.  The basic soot black paint is made alive by the vibrant reds, oranges and yellow body and face paints that make them photogenically attractive.  Still, when I view the photos I have captured, I am amazed with such beauty that went to making those faces a form of art.





.         I think there were 16 “tribus” this year who paraded in the streets of Kalibo (I actually lost count!).  Each group garbed more famboyant than the previous tribe.  Multiply one soot-painted face by a thousand, and you can imagine the mood permeating in the whole place … HALA BIRA!
