Cordillera Gallery

A web gallery of photographs of nature and indigenous people's life in the Cordillera region of northern Philippines. The photos are contributed by travelers and photographers who have lived and traveled there.


Jeffrey has seen Maligcong terraces and the changes over the years. He invited us in and told us all sorts of stories. With the money he earned as a driver, he sent his children to school.
Schools were built in the community and children could be educated, but gradually the children only obeyed the teachers and not the elders because getting good grades is worthy of respect.
In the old days, if an old man was passing by, a young man would fly over and carry his luggage without hesitation. Nowadays, if you don’t say something, they don’t move.
He said sadly that the rituals had become a formality.

On the way home from school, the carabao that greeted us earlier has a job ahead of him.
A woman and the footpath
Taking a break in the rice paddy

She’s probably going to be working in the rice field from now on.
A dog with a dignified expression
It’s rare to meet a dog that shows this kind of expression in Japan.
Dog and footpath between rice fields
Even dogs use this footpath.
Rice planting
She was just planting rice on our walk.
There was this grandfather’s house on the road we passed. Whether it’s a garden or a road, it doesn’t seem to matter either way when you’re here.
