“Good morning Manila”
“A floating AMERICA”
Photos and captions by artist Daisuke Takeya,
taken during his 2017 Manila artist-residency.
How straw hat to name a cross a
cross. Is there a manuscript?

the morning itself is at a loss.
The word ‘critical’ has been wanting
a piece of you,
its heart whispering of halts.
