Picturing Marawi Photo Exhibit in select Sm Malls

June 06, 2019 @ Atrium Sm MegaMall - SM's Picturing Marawi Photo Exhibit formally inaugurated 
featuring the heart-tugging photos of the Marawi siege aftermath immortalized by former journalist Mylah Reyes Roque from June 3 to August 31 in select SM malls.

Revisit the tragic backstory of the Maranaos a horrifying event that may never forget and marks to the history of the Philippines. We just heard and little saw on television some of the footage to what happens in the entire city of Marawi.

This is everybody's chance to take a look at never seen photos before taken during the battle between the forces of government against the rebel terrorist Maute group. Devastating results from a continous offensive strike of the military can be seen from the infrastructure that is left behind. 

"The exhibit memorializes the tragedy in Marawi with the aim to engage mallgoers and help them have a greater understanding of the conflict," said Jonjon San Agustin, SM Supermalls senior vice president for marketing.

Picturing Marawi narrates the aftermath of human conflict through images of buildings, homes, and mosques that are deserted by the war but nevertheless speak of the community that used to make it alive. These are stories of a siege fought in close quarters.

The Marawi siege was an armed conflict that took place in Marawi, Lanao del Sur - a city filled with pulsating energy that was silenced by war. The battle started on the 23rd of May 2017 and lasted for five months -leaving the city in ruins and ending the lives of many Filipinos.

Catch the photo exhibit in the following SM malls: Megamall (June 3 to June 11), Southmall (June 24 to 29), Sucat (July 22 to 28), Rosario (August 5 to 11), and Telabastagan (August 25 to 31). This endeavour is in partnership with National Museum.
