Gian Cruz is an up and coming photographer from Manila, Philippines who is also studying art theory and criticism at university. With hints of Daido Moriyama, Cruz’s photography are a quotidian, photographic diary of his life. Razor sharp grainy black & white images capture his subject often with their heads, arms, legs, face cut out from the photograph entirely. Gian Cruz is definitely a photographer to keep an eye on.
