Fashion and glamour isn’t limited to models decked out in haute couture. Which is why fashion photographer Jason Tablante let his inner geek take over his camera lens for Pop! Nostalgia, a photo exhibit that takes a quirky look at what we wouldn’t normally consider as “fashionable”: comics, cartoons, movies, and video games.
“The exhibit is a personal revisit of the characters and themes that helped mold my imagination throughout the years, and in a way, celebrate them,” said the 27-year old photographer.
The 12 images contain celebrities whom Tablante picked to show their versatility in portraying different personalities. Some of the stars who grace the exhibit are Rhian Ramos as a comic book superhero, Aljun Albrenica and Kris Bernal as action figures, Jackie Rice as a ragdoll, Mark Herras as a mobster, Isabel Oli as an alien, and Iza Calzado as a Stepford Wife.
See Tablante’s take on these pieces of pop culture featuring some of today’s hottest stars from GMA Artist Center, from June 3 to June 15, at the Crucible Gallery, Mega Mall.
