Revisit the tragic backstory of the Maranaos at SM’s Picturing Marawi Photo Exhibit 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. 

“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.

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. 

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.
