Brian Sergio: PAK!

PAK! Pak! is an onomatopoeia which imitates the sound of impact.

Inside these pages are the portraits of people I encounter everyday. What fascinates me about them is their collective rebellion against ­inhibitions and acceptable behavior in what is largely a conservative Catholic society. Some of them are friends, some I had an intimate ­relationship with, and some are strangers, but I can identify with them within my environment. Just the act of taking these photos have subjected me to the same criticisms that most of them have encountered.

In a way, it is an attempt to expose the world behind the façade that most Filipinos aspire to.
