From the postface by Robin Titchener:
"Manila-based photographer Brian Sergio’s photobook A Bastard Son collects his raw, energetic street and portrait photography shot in his home country, the Philippines.
Concentrating on the excesses and perils of the younger generations, Sergio's signature black-and-white image editing adds an extra element of dirtiness and grime to his scenes and lends the views he captured an almost surrealistic atmosphere.
« These pictures are shot with an eye so tuned to its environment that they allow the viewer to practically create an entire novel around them. We desire – even need – to know more. A face, captured in a second, becomes a companion to be remembered for life. »"
