Melvin Baet

I am Melvin Baet (Melvin Golosinda Medes), a Filipino nurse-midwife currently based in Ethiopia for a professorial job in a state university. I am a self-taught photographer, and these photographs are the touchstones of that learning.

But more importantly than the techniques that I learn, what matters is the joy that comes from just merely photographing life's pure moments, most especially the fleeting and the underappreciated ones.

I believe that photographs gives us the opportunity to engage in the lived experiences of people around us. A part of us becomes 'engaged' with our surroundings and we relive it in photographs. That is the magic, and I like to capture that magic.

I believe that photography is a truthful art. The gift of truth and art should be shared to a wider audience, to let them feel the truth and the emotion. So that even after seeing the picture and closing their eyes, it will remain in them to keep: the immortality of photography.

I hope to share those with you, as well as with the others.

Thank you ^_^
