In his second book of vintage photographs, Jonathan Best has retrieved a beautiful collection of Philippine images from the dusty albums and old picture postcards sent to America decades long ago. The pictures are accompanied by numerous quotes taken from Americans living in the Philippines at the time, bringing back an era which was swept away by the Second World War and subsequent modern development. Mr Best has selected photographs which focus on the lives and occupations of Filipinos and a few Americans. This is evident in the many expressive portraits of common men and women going about their daily lives. The pictures have been slightly enlarged and reproduced in tones close to the original prints, in some cases hand coloring from the era has been preserved. This "album" of timeless images is a visual feast and a poignant reminder of much which has been lost but also much which remains of the rich heritage and unique character of the Filipino people.
