Photojournalist Kim Komenich was awarded the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for his photos of the fall of the Ferdinand Marcos Regime in the Philippines in 1986. Komenich returned to the Philippines eight times from 2010-2015 to rephotograph and interview some of the people– rich and poor– in his 1980’s photos. He wanted to know whether, after more than two decades, the “People Power” (or EDSA) Revolution had actually made a difference in peoples’ lives. The 120-page book features duotone renditions of more than 100 of Komenich’s photos.

Introduction by Sheila Coronel. 120p.
