“It’s not like in the ‘first world'”, from Manila Mrt station

Gina is a Filipina living in Manila, she always made her living out of drawing, and selling her artwork. We interviewed her in Quezon City, metro Manila, where she did an improptu portrait in the metro station. “I’m 57 years old now, in 3 years I’ll be a senior, but if you’re not rich you want to die when you get old, because the government doesn’t take care of you, it’s not like in the ‘first world'”.
