INTERVIEW OF VEEJAY VILLAFRANCA IN ASIA PAPERCAMERA (Celebrating photography in Asia with interviews and stories from the region.)

"Why do I take photographs? With all the professionalism aside on how great or challenging it is to be a photographer, I think what was ingrained in me was the idea that other people’s stories enrich my life and I hope they will enrich other people’s lives too. Like a friend had said, you produce stories not because you want to be famous or be known as the only photographer to make these photos; you produce stories because you want to share a slice of a person or a community’s life, so hopefully someone else will see it, understand it and be happy or angered by it. It is about how the richness of other people’s stories affect your life. I take photographs because our differences as humans can be beneficial to each other."
