Recollecting Memories: Tukang Foto Keliling (National Monument)

Solo Exhibition at Ruang Rupa - Jakarta, 2015


"This project is the extension of the research I did in Kaliurang, Yogyakarta. This time, I choose National Monument (Monas) in Jakarta as my research area. Unlike my previous research, this project is not surrounding personal practice of the photographer but more of the general issue on politic, power, and strategy. For one month, I tried to seek for the relationship between photography, tourism, and power (in this case it was the government bureaucracy that organizes the tourism area)."
