Erik Lim is a Bicolano filmmaker, photographer, and writer. He usually shoots film cameras because the process helps him contemplate and appreciate his images better. He grew up in Manila but his sensibility has changed since his relocation to Tabaco City, Albay almost two decades now.
"The working title of my series is Funerals. This world is a sad place no matter how I look at it. I don’t need to elaborate because we feel it; we might not have realized it yet, or we don’t want to go deep within.
There are different kinds of death and I’m trying to photograph the emptiness that I feel. I’m hoping that I can create a strong work that will last."
