Manila bay was the setting for the Battle of Manila Bay in 1898 in which American troops led by Commodore George Dewey, seized the area. Significantly, this battle showcased the United States’ naval strength when all major Spanish ships were destroyed and captured. With its proud historic past and the place brimming with marine life, Manila Bay became the ocean portal to its epicenter for government, economy and industry.

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
I am a visual story teller drawn to capturing the beauty of every subject. This project is inspired by my desire to rediscover and showcasing the beauty of the Philippines.

My name is Mariano Sayno. I am a designer-photographer based in Manila. The past 15 years I have been photodocumenting places of interests and been shooting full-time freelance. I started my design business with the incredible support of friends and clients, has allowed me to travel fairly, and of course I have been documenting those trips extensively.

I've been lucky enough to travel in my life and I want more to explore and showcase the beauty of every single one of them. Through my travels to remote areas off the beaten track I will be able to showcase the beauty and appeal of areas that tourist don't usually get to see, providing a platform to grow local tourism industries.

Streets and travel photography are those of my greatest passions. My work has also included architectural and heritage photography, and has been featured in various books and periodicals.  Furthermore, traveling, and the experiences I have shared with countless kind human beings, artistic minds is another huge passion of mine.

Thank you! Stay creative!
