QUIAPO. Blood, Sweat, Hope, and Rodallie S. Mosende's Story

by Rick Rocamora, Rene Ciria-Cruz, Dan Amosin.
[WPP Publications, 2016]

Book Signing and Multimedia Presentation

"The real story of Quiapo is not about crime and filth. Those in the know see Quiapo in a different light: as a haven for strong-hearted, hardworking individuals tenaciously trying to overcome life's obstacles for their dreams."
—Rick Rocamora, Award-winning documentary photographer.

"Rick Rocamora's work has always exemplified the very best of what documentary photography can and should be. He commits to his subjects over a long period of time. He brings a warm heart and good intentions to his purpose and his gentle, yet attentive eye often captures moments that both reveal and touch. His new book, QUIAPO, embodies the best qualities of what Mr. Rocamora does, with the additional commitment to a single individual, whose life was profoundly changed by the focus of Rick's camera on her life."
—Ed Kashi, Award-winning documentary photographer, lecturer, author, and member of VII Photo Agency.
