Last week I worked on a quick assignment that took me photographing in Yogyakarta, Surabaya, and Jakarta for a foreign business magazine. Showing some selection below.
I personally enjoyed the assignment because I’m really interested in the topic. At some points during the assignment, I encountered a number of obstacles, but I always tried to overcome the difficulties. The assignment has allowed me to learn new things, especially in the topic it tries to explore. The opportunity to interview the subjects and make their portraits has also enriched me, as their stories are, to me, amazing—especially Ms. Cicil in Surabaya whose life story is really inspiring.
Now I am back in Yogyakarta, and back to doing my homework—some photography-related writings to do. By the way, it is 12.12.12 today, if that means anything to you. ∎
