Culture inspires art. These two facets go hand in hand in inspiring one another and moving each other through time. In revisiting culture and taking a closer look, you are able to further your vision and allow inspiration to drive your creativity forward.
In partnership with PURVEYR, OPPO Philippines is hosting a photo walk around the lovely old town of Binondo, a town that’s known for capturing the beauty of Old Manila. The photowalk will allow people to revisit the iconic and historical location that continues to bustle with life, and inspire creativity.
