Louise is a photographer and a cultural creative who finds happiness in documenting life events. Passionate about holistic education, indigenous culture, and conscious arts, she has been managing programs, facilitating photography and other creative workshops for the youth, and photographing events in education, culture and the arts.
She has been collaborating with Nex Agustin since 2008 in various projects, advocacies and consultancies alike.
In 2010, she joined the Masterclass in Documentary Photography of Alex Baluyut as its first Butch Baluyut scholar. In the same year, she was one of the young Asian photographers chosen to be part of the Angkor Photography Workshop in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Since then, she has been participating in group exhibitions and slideshows in Asia and Europe.
In 2015, along with Conscious Heart Creations and CultDevt, Louise co-initiated the In/Visible: Beyond Seeing Project, a crowdfunded photography+performance workshop-dialogue for community youth to explore the sense of self, kapwa, and community.
Louise is presently exploring the art of photo book-making and contemplative photography. She recently self-published Mother of the Fairytale, a book showing how a Steiner-inspired green school community in the outskirts of Davao, City Philippines came into existence.
