Portraits of a Tangled Relationship: The Philippines and the United States is about the engagement and entanglement of both nations since the Americans occupied the country in 1898. More than 60 years after the Philippines ceased being a US colony, the relationship continues to be described as “special” by both, and the book is an attempt to sift through the layers that make up this historically and emotionally charged description. Unique to this book are three ways of depicting the entanglement, which acknowledge rather than solve the difficulty of a tidy portrayal of history.
The book provides a visual and textual exploration of historical events, cultural exchanges, and the shared experiences that have shaped the complex ties between these countries. Through captivating images and insightful narratives, it invites readers to reflect on the multifaceted dynamics that have evolved over time.
