Gabriel John D. Rimando, Beauty Through Snapshots
Beauty is around us. “We just need to open our eyes to see the beauty. Photography has showed me that beauty is everywhere.”
This according to Gabriel Rimando is his art philosophy that has guided him all through the years as a freelance artist. “Photography has opened my eyes to a new world, not exactly with travel but with the stories that I hear with the people I meet.”
Gab is, in fact, a Senior Accountant at Echo Corner Trading since 2008.
“Photography for me is a way of life. We take photos to record the events that have transpired. When you look at the snapshot, you will be taken back and remember the emotion embedded on it. It is creating art and a way of expressing one’s inventiveness.”
It all started when Gabriel and his sister Genesis (now Mrs. Armandi Qorri) enrolled in a photography class. “I only wanted to study how to shoot and never did I realize that I will start embracing this in a sense that all I think about all day is how to improve my craft.”
