63-year- old Manny Inumerable often visits the Taal Basilica in Calle Marcela M. Agoncillo, Poblacion, Batangas. Here he recalls his childhood memories. Those days when he used to play around the square, with a rare camera instead of a toy.

Manny inherited his 1957 Royal Rangefinder from a deceased uncle. Since then, his camera became his constant companion, a best friend.

Now, Manny owns more than 140 vintage cameras. They are on display in his gallery, Galleria Taal, the only camera museum in the Philippines. Manny is keen on entertaining his guests with rich stories of his treasure trove of his collection.

Manny yearns to leave a lasting legacy through his preservation and restoration of his prized cameras.
