MOMENTS IN TIME

Elia Locardi launches Season 2

The episode takes place entirely in the Philippines and it features the well-known photographers Jan Gonzales and Win Magsino.

Elia Locardi talks to Alecs Oncal, an incredible photojournalist that constantly is on the frontline of sometimes very dangerous political and social events. She sends a powerful message that we need more truth-tellers in this world. Elia also sits down with the founder of Bambike Ecotours–someone that has created positive change in local Philippines communities.

Lastly, he photographs the Manila cityscape from the Torre de Manila with local photographer Jay Jallorina. 

If you’re unfamiliar with Moments in Time, the goal of this show is to highlight amazing and talented people, while showing the world that we are all at our best when we can encourage and lift each other up. If we help to amplify the voices of others, perhaps we can inspire positive change and bring attention to some of the important global issues we are passionate about. While Elia focuses on topics related to photography that can connect the global community and inspire change, he does it in a light-hearted and entertaining way.
