Remembering Julie Vega - 1984 Photos of Julie Vega by Simon Santos

Many thanks to Simon Santos, and Paeng Acuna.

Julie Pearl Apostol Postigo, who is better known by her screen name Julie Vega (May 21, 1968 – May 6, 1985), was a popular and well-loved Filipino movie and television actress and singer. Her sudden death at the tender age of 16 triggered a massive outpouring of nationwide grief that is still vividly remembered by Filipino showbiz fans after several years. --Wikipedia

Sometime in March 1984, I had this great and wonderful opportunity of photographing Ms. Vega, upon the request of her parents. They'll be needing the pictures for their various press releases. Of course, I obliged. Its a good break and something not to be missed! (That time, my career path was in the field of photography- setting up my own studio or a photo processing shop, but that didn't push thru as I ventured into a different field). I asked my friends from my group, Kameradare Camera Club to join and assist me, since I still don't have any experience photographing celebrities and this was my first time. That experience was memorable and I want to share some of these photos.
