About The Reel Series:
The Reel Series is a synchronized showcase of photo projections held between two countries. Initiated by Frame Zero – Asia’s Online and Print media on Photography – and curated by Manila-born photographer Erin Nøir, the project aims to promote cultural exchange, social awareness, and visual literacy through compelling photo essays.

Each body of work carries a distinct point of view that underscores not just the perceptions of participating photographers, but also everyday life for a particular locale. Key features of cultures and nations are exhumed, whether directly or indirectly, with the manner in which each narrative is presented. Collectively, the slideshows act as heavily nuanced gateways to each participating nation.
