Picturing Marawi Photo Exhibit at SM Supermalls


Picturing Marawi

The Battle of Marawi in 2017 is the longest urban battle in the modern history of the Philippines. It lasted for five months but the damage it has done to the community will forever be etched in the memory and heart of the Filipinos.

Picturing Marawi narrates the aftermath of human conflict through images of buildings, homes, and mosques that are deserted by war but nevertheless speak of the community that used to make it alive. These are stories of a siege fought in close quarters.
