Last 02 October 2012, Preview Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Pauline Suaco-Juan, through fellow Instagram’er Ginggay Joven (@ginggayjdm), invited IGersManila Philippines to take part in a live portraiture session with muses Georgina Wilson, Liz Uy, and Bea Soriano, together with other artists, to pay homage to Claudio Bravo’s works featured in Metropolitan Museum of Manila’s month-long exhibit entitled “Claudio Bravo: Sojourn in Manila.” From our filtered Instagram snapshots to the more traditional oil pastel sketches, the combined artwork have been collaged and featured in the December 2012 – January 2013 issue of Preview Magazine.
Joining IGersManila Moderators Carl C. Lozano (@cclozano), Ed Calaycay (@edcalaycay), and Petim Maminta (@ipetim) in this first ever live mixed media fashion editorial are our Sevenistas (Instagram’ers we picked from a special #9pmhabit on portraiture, though only 6 made it to the event) - John Henry Macalalad (@dearjohn26_pf_gi), Elver Lego (@instavher), Heigen Villacarlos (@jigen_jigolo_fu), Marie Lavin (@mlavin), Owen Santos (@owen_santos), and Rey Johnino (@reyjohnino).
More than the excitement and privilege of getting invited by Preview Magazine, the foremost fashion and lifestyle publication, and making history by sharing visual stories of elegance and beauty in a live portraiture session, it is the honor of being called and appreciated as “artists” – the unforgettable experience of working with fellow artists, as we snap photos, paused a bit to get awestruck with the muses, snapped some more, and went on applying our creative filters.
Check out all the Sevenistas’ snapshots here. Pages posted here, with which our snapshots have appeared, are scanned copies from the print. We’re of course looking forward to the next portraiture event.
Grab a copy of the December 2012 – January 2013 issue of Preview Magazine at your favorite bookstore or newsstand, also available for the iPad.
Keep the good vibes rolling!
