Nina Garibay’s work (YO) LOLO captures an old man – a lolo, Tagalog for grandfather – with three grandchildren, two of whom break the fourth wall to poke fun at the photographer. In her piece, Nina shines the spotlight on the thrill-seeking attitude of millennials, the way they want to have fun and be free, and in turn get distracted by seeking these momentary pleasures. Ironically, the same choices that had made the millennials’ lives fun have also made their lives more complicated. Amidst this, millennials try their best to find meaning in their lives – after all, as Nina notes, “you only live once” (YOLO)
