About the Exhibit

Bankerohan, as a place is mainly characterized by the market within its territories, the river, and the bridge over it that connects one part of Davao City to the other.

Bankerohan is located at the heart of Davao and one of the few places in the city where people from all walks of life converge for one will find here a vast array of establishments.

What’s been giving Bankerohan its distinct color and feature are not the material things within it but the people who dwell in it and whose lives are shaped by this extraordinary place.

In this photo essay, the author documented the everyday lives of vendors, consumers, and laborers.
