Bayanihan- Happiness Within

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.





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