INTERVIEW BY MARI SANTOS
Working in the metro requires you to have a fast-paced lifestyle of waking up, commuting, working, sleeping, and doing it all over again tomorrow. But the pandemic had other plans, as it initiated the onset of workers going back home to their provinces. The uncertainty—along with the stress on their finances made relocation a more conducive route—especially for young creatives.
26-year-old professional photographer JP Talapian is a creative with a degree of Fine Arts Major in Advertising from University of Santo Tomas. He has worked with publications such as Preen and Scout. He has also shot for brands such as Carl Jan Cruz, Colourette Cosmetics, and OXGN Clothing.
He has traded urban cityscapes for a less hectic beachfront, reuniting with his family and getting a well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here, he gives us a glimpse of his everyday life on the island by showcasing a mix of Rustans' well-loved brands and his very own clothes, a testament to his style evolution.
