Tata 'HELLS' Night at the Oarhouse ;-)

Gil and Nap Jamir

What a night. One of Philippine Photojournalism's steady and consistent lights -- Gil Nartea or otherwise known in acidic but respectfully affectionate terms by colleagues and friends by the monicker 'Tata Hell', launched his long-awaited solo exhibit titled 'Children in Conflict Situations' at the Oar last night. Friends of the photographer from near and far -- Heber Bartolome, Nap Jamir, and scores more -- arrived and attended, and they need not be elaborated on in that the images in their presentation truly made another one of those classic Oarhouse nights in the company of true friends and family which you truly must experience for yourself in this place to believe.

And to which we all say -- Salud TATA HELL! Long may you live and never age, our good friend, brother, teacher, and master photographer.

-- Ben

'Children in Conflict Situations' will be on exhibit at The Oarhouse until the second week of December 2006.
