EXPLORING URBAN MIGRATION IN DAVAO CITY'S CEMETERIES
Puluy-anan translates to 'home' in Bisaya, a common dialect of the southern Philippines.
This series depicts the homes and living environment of hundreds of informal settlers in Davao City, Philippines, 2016.
Puluy-anan focuses on two settlements built in Maa Public Cemetery and Wireless Catholic Cemetery. Many of the settlers migrated to the city hoping for stable work. Due to contractual work that pays below minimum wage, people are forced to live in rent-free cemeteries.
