Envisioned in the 1950s by Filipino abstract painter Fernando Zobel, the Ayala Museum was established in 1967 under the auspices of Ayala Foundation, Inc. It began as a museum of Philippine history and iconography, and transformed itself into a museum of fine arts and history as the 20th century drew to a close.

_

Raymund Isaac, the Philippines’ foremost photography of the stars and celebrities, today informally announced through Facebook that he will post his first blog in his new blog site, http://raymundisaacblog.tumblr.com/. As he described himself as a “People Photographer” his artistic touch transcends decades of work. He was particularly involved in many nudes before, his inclination to being “playful and sensuous” but his art has evolved through the years, and art, form and photography encompass what is Raymund Isaac today, beyond just tagged as a “Premier Fashion Photographer.”

Raymund was a Lasallian from primary school all the way to college where he took up film and television at the De La Salle University. In the many apprenticeship years and experience with luminaries in film and television, he has been cited and awarded numerous times, and have worked with prestiguous locally and internationally known people.

Watch out for his first blog on Monday!
