Surfacing 1 and 2

In 2007, several photographers began a documentary project called SURFACING to highlight the plight of the families of the disappeared, or the desaparecidos in the Philippines. We sought to raise public awareness of this and other important human rights issues through photography and creative storytelling.

Six years since this project began, the families continue to suffer. To this day, they continue to look for their missing loved ones. They continue to seek justice. In time for the commemoration of the International Day of the Disappeared on August 30, we are republishing the photo stories. We are making ourselves remember.
