Signos - Veejay Villafranca
Veejay Villafranca is a documentary photographer based in Manila who has been covering extreme weather events affecting the Philippines since Typhoon Ketsana in 2009. In 2013 he photographed the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded, which left more than 6,000 dead and displaced six million people. ‘Signos’, which means “dark warning”, illustrates different scenarios brought about by severe weather patterns in the region through haunting images of devastation and resilience.The lives of people displaced by these occurrences are further complicated by inadequate relocation solutions, livelihood security, and human trafficking.
