I met Geronimo as I was doing my photo essay.


He is a skilled sculptor from Paete, Laguna who is currently based in Bagac, Bataan and earns his living by creating wooden sculptures of past Philippine presidents.

When his boss feels that these sculptures does not measure up to the likeness of these past presidents, Geronimo has no choice but to revise by severing their heads and starting from scratch.

I wanted to take a better portrait of Geronimo the following day but I was told that he went to town to buy a lottery ticket.
