IN the course of being on assignment for another purpose, it occurred to me to extend the scope of my photographic documentation of war's effects on children in my travels to the ARMM (autonomous region of muslim mindanao) and the sites of MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) strongholds in Cotabato, Basilan and Sulu from 2003 to 2005.
The images from this exhibit are a result of that effort.
