With a face that tells a thousand tales, this unknown young woman was photographed in the Philippines by Dutch photographer Francisco Van Camp in 1875. The photograph’s inscription describes her as Mestiza Sangley-Filipina, a term widely used in the 16th to 19th-century Spanish Philippines to differentiate ethnic Chinese from other types of island mestizos (such as those of mixed Indio and Spanish ancestry, who were much fewer in number.)
