I am Ric, an asylum seeker from the Philippines. I am currently residing in Osnabrück, Niedersachsen with my wife. We left the Philippines because of its harsh and worsening sociopolitical climate.
I am an IT professional back home but I always had this artistic side that I dreamed of pursuing. I was not able to pursue it because it was very economically impractical in a developing country. When we decided to come here, I also decided to try and pursue my artistic passion.
My question: Is there someone in the community who has contacts in the German art and/or photography world who can help me promote and/or develop my work?
I have always felt that my work has an intrinsic message that the world needs to see and hear. I would be eternally grateful if someone can me help deliver these message. „Manila Bay“ (riccalioliojr.com/manila-bay) and „Lull“ (riccalioliojr.com/lull) are the two photo series that I would like to share. Attached are my artist statements.
Thank you in advance!
