Alan Petralba, sta. filomena, alegria, cebu Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement Art, photography, and music have always been my passions since I was young. We had our own sunlit darkroom at home where we processed black and white photos from film. I was also into watercolor and I thought I might take up Fine Arts or become an architect.
I ended taking up Accountancy in order to be able to work while in college. I passed the licensure exams in 1977, worked in a bank, married, and had a child. Being an internal auditor I was among the first to use a computer in the office and when I retired in 1998 I was online at home but I was into songwriting. I finally quit working in 2006, a year after my wife's death.
I live alone in the country now, in the fishing village of Sta. Filomena, in the town of Alegria, in the island province of Cebu, in central Philippines. This is where I shoot my sunsets.
