WE ARE WATER: A Photography Exhibit by Aidx Paredes

Photographer, graphic designer and fashion blogger Aidx Paredes launched his first solo photography show 3 years ago, when he was 17 years old. Entitled "Edge of Seventeen", the exhibit showed his wide variety of interests from portraits to fashion editorials. Now, at 20 years old, he unveils his second solo show, WE ARE WATER at the Abreeza Corporate Center, Davao City.

A photography exhibit entitled WE ARE WATER debuts this March 16 to April 16, 2015 at the ground floor of Abreeza Mall Corporate Center. The collection of 12 ocean-themed photographs is the second solo exhibit of the young and talented multimedia artist, Aidx Paredes.

WE ARE WATER evokes a subdued sensuality, with its intimate — almost voyeuristic — depictions of the artist's chosen bodies of water. The collection of seamlessly collated photographs is the artist's quiet departure from the aesthetics of his earlier works on portrait and fashion photography. The artist was also inspired by the analogy of the ocean to the self, thus, WE ARE WATER.

The aptly titled series features sceneries from Camiguin Island, Canibad, IGACOS, San Juan, La Union, and Siargao Island.

This exhibit is made possible with the support of Abreeza Ayala Mall, Christine Munda of Fashion Institute of Design and Arts, Andrea de la Torre of Tali PH, Marissa Tionko of Bagobo Hotel, Caye Simpoo of The Zero Plastic Project of Siargao Island, Jesh Juson and Xiao Prieto of Alleycat Teahouse, and Dianne Corpus of Dianne Corpus Design.

WE ARE WATER is slated to be unveiled in Cebu City and Siargao Island, and hopefully in other areas around the country.

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone
