ABOT TANAW: Tracing Local Horizons
As part of the National Heritage Month, the Metropolitan Museum of Manila showcases an exhibit that looks to the natural beauty of the Philippines, seen through the lens of avocational photographers, “Abot-tanaw: Tracing Local Horizons”
Taken from the popular locations around the archipelago, the vistas create a picturesque continuity between sweeping landscapes enveloped by the sky and earth. Capturing recognizable architectural structures, monuments, and objects of livelihood suggest a footprint of activity and energy that contrasts the lull of the phases of the twilight from sunset to dusk, relating to the passage of time, and the beauty n its interlude. The interpretation of Abot-tanaw or horizon goes beyond its principal description to express a deeper sense of hope and anticipation for the future.

The MET Museum is open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm
