Published

For 10 years now, Jose E.B. Antonio has been putting his love for travel to good use. He captures moments, traditions, and sceneries from his expeditions in their raw, unrehearsed state, and shares them with friends and loved ones through a yearly postcard collection that he fondly calls Travelogue. “I take pictures to share my experiences with other people,” he says, noting that he also loves the challenge that it brings and the rare opportunity to compete and learn from the country’s master photographers.

    A business leader who is more known as the founder and executive chairman of the innovative real estate firm Century Properties Group, Antonio is also a member of the Camera Club of the Philippines and Leica Club Manila, where he actively contributes entries and works for exhibition. He sees his camera as a tool to discover, experience, and educate himself about the world.

    For Antonio, photography is not just a respite from the daily grind of corporate life. He uses it to channel the passion and drive for excellence in his commercial ventures into a new field where the objectives are highly different. “In photography, my objective is how to capture the moment and produce something that others can enjoy,” he shares.

    In his first solo exhibition called Across the Continents: A Travelogue Series by Jose E.B. Antonio, he showcases 30 photos from his adventures and National Geographic expeditions in Asia, North and South America, and Europe. Some of his collections include rare experiences in the deserts of Mongolia, the Kingdom of Bhutan, and the arresting Antelope Canyons in Arizona, among others. His award-winning photographs of an Aeta in a river in Zambales and the freezing winter in Lake Placid, New York, are also on display.

    Hisphotographs are now on exhibit at the newly opened Antonio Gallery, located at the Sky Loft of Century City Mall, Makati, a venue open to individuals and groups for showcasing their work or holding special lectures and talks. “Everyone is welcome here to use the space for creative and learning pursuits,” Antonio says.

    Proceeds of the exhibit sale and venue fees will be donated by the J Antonio Foundation to Operation Smile Philippines and Haven for the Elderly (formerly Golden Acres Home for the Aged).

    To see more of his works, visit Antonio Gallery at the 4/F (Sky Loft) of Century City Mall, Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City.
