Aaron Palabyab is a filmmaker and a photographer specializing in landscape and time-lapse.
Originally trained and working in film and commercial production, he worked as a director and cameraman before branching out into new directions as his travels took him around the world beginning 2014. Since then, the work he has produced from travel and expanding his practice have brought multiple international awards and recognition for both his photography and film work.
Alongside his own professional and personal work, he is also pursuing an international art practice as part of Kometa, a collaborative duo with Polish artist Agnieszka Rowińska. For part of the year they travel to various countries via artist residencies to pursue and develop projects, while the rest of the year they collaborate long-distance between Manila and Warsaw. Together, they have produced a number of short films, a mixed media installation, and a photography series.
He is based in Metro Manila, Philippines.
