Charlie Kaijo/@charliekjo (Summer 2016) in Tagaytay, Philippines, south of his birthplace of Manila, with Taal Volcano Island in the lake’s middle distance. “This trip was my second visit home, the first being in 2001,” he writes of his spring travels. “Spending time with my cousins and aunts was the highlight of this visit. They took us to different sites in Manila, including the hospital where I was born and my mom’s university. The trip allowed me to experience what my family is like and some of the rules of my culture, experiences I never really had.” Kaijo is a photojournalist at the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in Fayetteville.
