Brian Sergio – Dios Mio!

Raw, passionate, direct, honest without a bit of compromise to be softer to please the viewer, without turning away from any detail of the life that is genuinely enjoyed and fully lived through the way it is, however unconventional it might seem.

"As I was going through my pictures, I came across a folder full of randomly selected photographs from various projects or sources that maybe discontinued, or cannot be categorized. It was all over the place piled up like dirty laundry. There are personal stuff, pictures of christian devotees practicing their penitence, behind the scenes pictures of porn shoots, and my mislabelled Kinbaku sessions.

But there is something in them, a pattern of some sort that suggests how I instinctively map my memory through pictures. Giving it a diaristic take of my transgressive personal life."

Brian Sergio is a Photographer, Painter, and Graphic Designer. He studied painting at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts. His work has often been described as raw, transgressive, and irreverent. His method has always been about energy and movement; taking a gamble, getting involved, and going with the flow without diffidence. Sergio currently lives and works in Manila, Philippines. Dios Mio! is after PAK! his second book published by dienacht.

PAK! Pak! is an onomatopoeia which imitates the sound of impact.

As if emerging from Mad Max movies, Indonesian motorists wander around the country riding ­custom-built Vespas, which look too weird not only to outsiders.

This is where the Coen Brothers shot FARGO. New Leipzig is home to 300 souls. In midsummer their numbers triple: The city celebrates its Octoberfest.

I always get nervous when I have to introduce myself and the only phrase that's left in my brain is: "Hi, my name is Josh and I like to take pictures".
