Joan Monis Pabona
ImageJoan Monis Pabona is a street photographer and domestic worker. Born and raised in the northern part of the Philippines, she has been based in Hong Kong since 2013. Her affinity for the art came from the enjoyment she took from observing her environment, and her admiration of black and white photography. Her photographs capture the daily life in the city. She is fascinated with taking pictures of people's emotions and expressions that depict the realities of life, which reflects her own personality and experiences as a woman and stranger in a place she calls a second home. Pabona was first runner-up in the National Geographic Wheelock Properties Youth Photo Competition 2017 (People and Happenings in Hong Kong section). [Photography 1 2]
