Ernielson Limbo

City:

Originating from the Philippines, Ernielson Limbo uses personal family photographs in order to explore and challenge the representation influenced by normative values the mass population conform to.

Growing up in a strict Filipino household, experimentation with gender and sexuality was forbidden.

Through this body of work, Limbo attempts to regain control and power over years of misguided and mistaken depiction of identity which heavily impacted his mental health. Driven by own experiences and struggles this piece elevates the sense of nostalgia which he challenges. Rebelliously going against the constraints of the rigid conservative culture he was brought up with, Limbo introduces a newly found identity and independence. Playfully marking and changing the way he was once viewed.

UNITED, 2020

these self-portraits photography is a celebration to diversity. 

Yes we are black and yes we are white. Even if we are both so different, born on opposite sides of the planet, we both started from one single cell. This is a pretty simple statement that NO ONE should ever forget or underestimate. Diversity should always exist and should always remain. The fusion of it should always lead to beauty, progress and evolution and not the opposite. We are here to listen, to help educating through our art. It’s important we continue to put an effort on educating ourselves so that we can all change the present and the future by unlearning the negative influnces of the past. The fusions of cultures, colours and minds are the secret to progress and we all deserve to LIVE under the same sky united with respect and tolerance.

I'm originally from Hong Kong. Having lived in multiple countries from a young age, I have come across people from all walks of life. These experiences, both good and bad, have influenced her culturally and personally. My work revolves around travel, diasporas, and the human condition. I combine my interests in image-making and graphics to share stories of my own and other’s experiences living in an increasingly globalized world.

Woman looking through a Chinese herbal store in Hong Kong. Although disputed in Western culture, there are still many traditional herbal medicine stores operating in Hong Kong. As contemporary as Hong Kong is, traditional herbal medicine is very much a part of Hong Kong's identity, one that many find comfort in and have fond (or traumatizing) memories of, just as I remember painstakingly drinking a bowl of bitter herbal soup my grandma made to help promote my health. This photograph shows a glimpse of the importance that traditional herbal medicine holds in Hong Kong's contemporary society.

The focus of Crystal Clean, is to explore the idea that seemingly absolute perfection is a prison and entrapment we unknowingly encase ourselves in. 

This crystal shell she lives in is striking and audacious, not easy to miss. It acts as a label slapped across her body to be stared at, however, in positive contrast, the glistening casing over her skin draws attention to the beauty of the shape of the female form that shouldn’t be hidden, and should be celebrated.

It acts as a label slapped across her body to be stared at, however, in positive contrast, the glistening casing over her skin draws attention to the beauty of the shape of the female form that shouldn’t be hidden, and should be celebrated.
The Crystal Clean series takes inspiration from 1960s instructional videos and commercials of how to be a well groomed woman. The television aims to capture a seemingly mundane moment of the womans isolated life as she watches these videos which are just white noise.
Time to Glow focuses on a habitual beauty ritual, undertaken by many - suntanning. The image shows use of a reflective sunbonnet melting the womans face and setting her on fire, whilst she remains oblivious to the negative and harmful impact of her pursuit down the road to physical perfection.

As the UK struggles with Lockdown fatigue during the Covid19 crisis, couples and friends escape their homes to enjoy the warm weather and exercise. Swimmers respect the social distancing rules, cooling off in the River Lea, Hackney , London UK.

So to get this shot I went out armed with my 70-200mm lens . The brief was - to get a pretty picture of people pushing boundaries of social distancing and the relaxing of lockdown rules from Sunday.
I've got to be honest cycling around London parks armed with my long lens made me feel really uncomfortable! Aiming into the crowds and trying to single out groups of friends clearing meeting up. I thought anyone can make this look busy with a telephoto lens and actually no one was really breaking the rules .. it looked busy but couples and small groups were at a social distance from each other! The police came along and moved everyone on that was sunbathing and not exercising, which gave me a few pix but nothing pretty.
I headed home via the canal path through Hackney marshes and happened upon a scene from, I quote, “what heaven might look like“
It felt like a dreamy escape somewhere exotic, but is actually In Hackney! The police moved the majority on who were sunbathing on the banks, but a few returned to the tranquil cool waters of the river Lea, respecting social distances from each other. I hung around just long enough to catch this couple kissing and meet my deadline !
