Teodulo Protomartir

Old Sta. Mesa by Teodulo Protomartir (see image source here)

Teodulo Protomartir is one of the first Filipino photographer who popularized the use of 35mm cameras during the 30's and 50's - a time when large format was the norm (source).  Some of his work will be shown in an exhibition titled 'Being There 1946: The Legacy of Teodulo Protomartir' at Silverlens Gallery on the 9th of June 2010.

Can't wait to hear Uro dela Cruz talk about Protomartir - the man who accidentally found Protomartir's work in a thrift shop in Manila.
