Zen Foto Gallery, 2018. First edition. Clothbound hardcover, 310 x 225 mm, 96 pp., 85 b/w illustrations. Photographs by Brian Sergio. Text by Robin Titchener (English / Japanese).
Manila-based photographer Brian Sergio’s photobook “A Bastard Son” collects his raw, energetic street and portrait photography shot in his home country, the Philippines.
Concentrating on the excesses and perils of the younger generations, Sergio’s signature black-and-white image editing adds an extra element of dirtiness and grime to his scenes and lends the views he captured an almost surrealistic atmosphere.
