The Philippines is the most Catholic nation in the world. Cultural heritage of the Spanish domination, Catholicism is deeply rooted in the society. The series "Last Supper" investigates the private space of the Filipinos, their homes, allowing a look inward and intimate, in an attempt to understand the society and its spirituality. Almost every family owns a representation of the “Last Supper”, which strongly underlines the sacredness of sharing a meal. What results is a study that highlights various aspects of Filipino society, as the sense of taste and decoration, the differences between the various social classes and especially the great religiosity of this country.
