“I am a storyteller,” shares Rodel Diaz, professing his love for art which dates a long way back to childhood. He began painting and sketching; but lacking the discipline to prepare his tools meticulously, he transitioned into photography which was more to his taste and personality.
“My photography started before the Internet enslaved the world. As a self-taught weekend photographer through trial and error, I shot mostly with an SLR film camera borrowed from a friend. I bought mine while working in Hong Kong just a few months after the world revealed the first DSLR.
