The Philippines has another reason to be proud after a Filipino photographer managed to secure a spot at an international showing in Scotland.

Negros Oriental native Nick Brian Cadalso’s photo has been featured in the photo exhibition organized by the Glasgow Gallery of Photography (GGP). 

According to Cadalso, the gallery contacted him in November last year regarding his work’s inclusion in the annual photo show, which handpicks only 60 photos from around the world to present in their yearly outing.

He said the exhibit was rescheduled to March 2021 due to the complications brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In an interview with Philippine Star, Cadalso noted that he wasn’t familiar with Scotland. He shares that his only point of reference for the European nation is a song from ABBA titled “Super Grouper.”

However, that didn’t deter the 31-year-old, who hails from Bais, from submitting a photo to the exhibition – which focused on street life in the Philippines amid the pandemic.

The photos – curated for the annual exhibit – will be displayed along Glasgow’s major thoroughfares.

As its name suggests, the gallery is situated in the Scottish city of Glasgow – part of the United Kingdom. It was set up in 2015 by like-minded photographers – who wanted to create a space for people to share their common love of photography. 

“The Glasgow Gallery of Photography was set up in 2015 by a group of Glasgow photographers with plans to create a gallery dedicated to photography in the city [Glasgow]. It’s a space where people can go to see photography from local photographers as well as international work,” the gallery said on its official page
