I know little about his background but all I know is this guy started from humble beginnings.

One of my personal favorite is his Rosalinda series. He just captures her emotions and gives it back to you so hard your heart will stop beating for a moment.

You’ll probably see her (Kharu) on most of Manny Librodo’s works. I don’t know the deal with this two but If  I’m on his shoes I will definitely take her as my model and shoot her 24-7.  You just can’t get enough of beautiful Kharu.

Humble Words

“Initially, my love for photography was confined to just being a spectator of beauty. I like colors and patterns. I like displays of majesty and splendor. I like to experience unique cultures. All of these interests eventually led to travel and photography entered the mix merely as a means to document my journeys. At first I carried a simple point and shoot camera and always wanted to be in the picture myself. After all, how would friends and relatives know that I was there if I didn’t appear in the photo? So I posed whenever, wherever and however” – Manny Librodo
