Hail! U.P. Oblation - The Centennial Photo-Op


At the crack of dawn on December 13, 2008, the country’s top photographers and international press will be on hand at the UP Amphitheatre for a Photo Expedition that will feature 100 Oblation Men from all sectors of the University (UP students, alumni, faculty and staff) to honor the immortal symbol of academic freedom, excellence and service. Models will be suited with a crafted fig leaf, exclusively designed by renowned fashion designer, Eric Pineda. As the 100 Oblation Men pose, photographers will be given time to capture the moment by interpreting the meaning of the Oblation through their camera lenses.

Top Philippine photographers including media will be invited to this photo expedition which we hope will land on the cover of TIME magazine and the front pages of national dailies. As of this writing, we already have confirmation from both local and foreign press photographers that they will cover the event. The best shots will be featured in the UP Centennial Coffee Table Book which is now a work in progress. Slots are still available for the 100 Oblation Men in this once-in-a-lifetime event.

For more details, contact Debbie at 09177913924 or Misha at 09209015107. Queries can be sent to hailupoblation@gmail.com. Photographers may also get in touch with Debbie.

Join up and spread the word! A chance like this comes only once every 100 Years.

  3. The run may have stood for something, but the spectators make sure the message is lost, as the run is now just titillation for women to humiliate naked men.

    The spectators’ actions are disgusting, and nothing more than degrading to the men.

    You women should be ashamed, especially if you believe being disrespectful, objectifying, dishonouring, and shaming are not acceptable against women. Why would you accept the same against men?

    Respect these men. Do not photograph or video these men, and turn your back when they run to show your support!!!
