Women of the Mountains
Christopher Andres – PHILIPPINES
Winner – Best 5 Photos
The terraces are on the northern island of Luzon in the Philippine archipelago, where the community’s farming schedule and culture are being eroded by the unpredictable climate. Members of the tribe are having a hard time adjusting to the new circumstances. In the Igorot community, women contribute to the preservation of both the rice terraces and the surrounding forest.
I’ve been a photographer since 2015. Currently working as an Administrative Assistant II in the Philippines.
