Photographer's Note

This shot is from the 2nd story of a MacDonalds restaurant in Cebu, Philippines. Cebu is home to some of the happiest and most hospitable people in the entire world. They live with a deep passion for life, whether it be their own or that of others.

Unfortunately, much of the Philippines has fallen victim to Western exploitation. We send labor over seas and offer minimal pay to those who work in the factories. At best this serves as a temporary boost to a developing nations economy, but the moment a western company finds a counrty with lower labor costs we send the work to a different country leaving a deep scar of abuse on the countries we use for cheap labor. Our consumerism at home leaves millions homeless and destitute abroad.
