Picturing Marawi | Photographs By Mylah Roque

"One picture tells a thousand words.."

Ms. Mylah Reyes-Roque revisited the tragic backstory of the Maranaos during the Picturing Marawi Photo Exhibit launch in Sm Megamall, featuring the heart-tugging photos of the Marawi siege aftermath.
She's journalist and a Home Development Mutual Fund Trustee, and has already visited Marawi four times. The first time was during the siege, when she and her husband brought items for the soldiers and displaced residents. And when Home Development Mutual Fund (PagIBIG) provided housing assistance to employees of the Mindanao State University immediately after the siege.
Picturing Marawi narrates the aftermath of human conflict through images of buildings, homes, and mosques that are deserted by the war but nevertheless speak of the community that used to make it alive. These are stories of a siege fought in close quarters.



You can catch the photo exhibit in the following SM malls: 
Megamall (June 3 to June 11)
Southmall (June 24 to 29)
Sucat (July 22 to 28)
Rosario (August 5 to 11)
Telabastagan (August 25 to 31). 

This endeavor is in partnership with National Museum. 
The Marawi siege was an armed conflict that took place in Marawi, Lanao del Sur a city filled with pulsating energy that was silenced by war. The battle started on the 23rd of May 2017 and lasted for five months leaving the city in ruins and ending the lives of many Filipinos.
