Bayanihan- Happiness Within
バヤニハン−内なる幸せ

photographed by Lyndon Lusk Lehde
  撮影者 リンドン ラスク リード  

Bayanihan in Filipino culture is defined as a community coming together and supporting each other to achieve a goal or overcome a problem, despite their limited resources. The Filipino people often remain positive during these challenging times, which is often reflected in their outgoing personalities and warm smiles.
 

フィリピン文化における「バヤニハン」とは、限られた資源にもかかわらずコミュニティの皆で

集まって互いに助け合い、目標を達成したり課題を解決したりする助け合いの精神として定義

されています。フィリピンの人々は、困難な状況でも前向きであり続ける事が多く、

それは彼らの社交的な性格と温かい笑顔に反映されています。
 

It is the hope of the photographer that you can observe Bayanihan through his images and reflect on your own definition of happiness.


撮影された写真を通してバヤニハンに触れ、皆さんご自身の幸せの定義について考えて頂けることが、写真家としての願いです。
