Multi-awardwinning Anita Magsaysay-Ho has been
known to capture women engaging in various local
industries — celebrating them with her charming flair
in their depictions.
Despite Anita’s privileged background, her fascination
with working-class women gave her a certain
appreciation for their toil. She gave praise and honor
to the working class, and did so very easily. As Leonidas
Benesa wrote: “It is a theme she is most at ease with
and most creative about.”
