Wilfred Kodakan LogoInspired by images in the book Filipinos in San Francisco and from the San Francisco Historical Photograph Collection, Artists Wilfred Galila and Peggy Peralta,with assistance from Cece Carpio, have taken a series of photographs and video images of the contemporary Pilipino community—both in posed and casual settings—to create a media project that explores changing expressions of Pilipino cultural identity over time. By juxtaposing images of “then and now,” we contextualize the Pilipino American narrative and examine perceptions of what/who is Pilipino.


Many thanks to our project partners, the Filipino American Development Foundation, and the Manilatown Heritage Foundation.
