True to its legacy of inspiring people, Star Magic launched the “Love from Home” digital catalogue to raise funds for the ABS-CBN Pantawid ng Pag-Ibig program. In this time of a pandemic, love becomes the most powerful string that binds us all – artists, fans, every Filipino – together. And this is what “Love from Home” aims to showcase, that the love we extend from our abode during the lockdown can travel far and touch other lives.
We often see celebrities in the small and big screens. But this time, through the “Love from Home” special lockdown portraits, we get a sneak peek of their lives off-cam. The Kapamilya stars were given the freedom to explore their creativity by producing a series of portraits all by their own, without the glam team and production crew they used to work with during pictorials. So, it’s been a challenging and fun learning experience.
Enchong did not put too much drama to his entries. He said he wanted to keep the photos as authentic as possible. For him, he was giving the fans a piece of his personal life, thus the candid and comfortable-looking aesthetics. “If I’m going to take a photo of myself dito sa bahay, kung saan ako usually nagha-hang out, which is my room and at the balcony sa second floor kasi gustong-gusto ko doon kapag nagpapaaraw.”
Enchong asked his brother to act as the photographer. He thinks they’re able to capture the essence of what “Love from Home” is all about. “The sole purpose is to show kung anuman ‘yung meron tayo sa bahay and the way we make use of everything. Also ‘yung pino-promote natin which is staying at home at kung ano ‘yung ginagawa mo sa labas, pwede mo rin gawin sa bahay.”
