Thumb Tacks Photo Exhibit greets U-Week 2009 visitors

A multi-themed photo exhibit entitled, Thumb Tacks, greeted to welcome the UNO-R visitors to its U-Week 2009 celebration since day one on Sept. 7, until it ended on Sept. 12.

Stopping the people to look and relish were the environmental, socio-cultural, political and spiritual images which were skillfully and artistically captured by 13 premier camera bugs of UNO-R.

Led by no less than the present and past university presidents, Fr. Dionisio Cachero, OAR, and Fr. Sixto Bitangol, OAR, the exhibit displayed the images that depicted life realities in their unique and fascinating expressions and forms.

Adding further to the exhibit spectacle were the photos of VP-Academics and Recoletos de Bacolod Graduate School Dean Fr. Joel Alve, OAR; University Property Administrator Bro. Jaazeal Jakosalem, OAR, Fr. Boyax Jaranilla, OAR, DSA Director Carlos Eduardo Legaspi, Faculty Fernando Flores and Reymund Sabay, and PRO and Web Team Staff Avelino Kalalang. 

Also put on view were the distinctive photos of working scholars Donson John Sadavan, Janette Espinosa and Brian Buenconsejo, and Tolentine Star staff Rommel Depasucat.

While most of the photos on display were locally shot, some photos of Fr. Bitangjol – the present VP for Administration, Basic Education Director, and High School Principal – were taken from his recent trip to Saipan and Thailand.

Fr. Alve had also photos taken from his recent trip to Australia, while Fr. Cahero’s were from his collections from his previous trips abroad.#
