NEWPORT CITY, Pasay, Philippines – On Thursday, May 30, the latest series of conceptual photography of the award-winning visual artist Niccolo Cosme, will have a one-night exhibit, titled ‘Traversing Across the Universe’ will be held at Opus, Resorts World Manila.
It will feature 18 photos that reflect movements, shifts and growth in Cosme’s work. The exhibit is a joint celebration for Cosme and Ruffa Mae Quinto, whose birthdays fall in May. Three of the photos showcase Ruffa Mae, who had collaborated with Niccolo since the start of the visual artist’s career as a celebrity photographer.
Also, the month of May is significant to Niccolo, which coincides with the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial (on the 3rd Sunday of May each year) and the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) on 17th, respectively.
Niccolo has garnered national as well as international awards in the course of his distinguished career as a photographer. In 2012, he was awarded the ‘Ani ng Dangal’ for visual arts by the National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA).
