Picture of Subanon folks on their way to market in Lapuyan Municipality, Zamboanga del Sur, sometime late '70s, martial law. Joy, an ethnomusicologist, was doing her research in Lapuyan, and I was her 'unofficial' photographer. At this period of time I was unaware that this experience was germinating a new novel "Subanons," with an unusual protagonist, not a person, an animal, or trees, but a tribe, struggling to survive the horror and oppression of martial law.
