Back in Yogyakarta after a flash trip to Jakarta to present my recent work at a National Geographic Indonesia readers forum at the National Gallery in conjunction with Aku Diponegoro exhibition, then short trip to Bandung to speak at a roundtable discussion regarding the community endorsement in photography, held at Lawangwangi Creative Space as part of Bandung Photo Showcase 2015.

I have some homeworks here back home. Loads of them. And more to come.

Yudi Ahmad Tajudin read poems at Garasi

I attended Garasi Performance Institute’s (Teater Garasi) new studio open house the other day, 30 Jan 2015. The event was started in the afternoon with a discussion and book launching (Bertukar Tangkap dengan Lepas) marking their 20th anniversary—it was formed in December 1993. At night, they invited a theater group from Solo, Sahita, and a local folk band, Sungai, to perform. The night was casual with drinks and snacks and talks. Yennu Ariendra kept the music playing while Erson Padapiran played his trumpet. Yudi Ahmad Tajudin, Garasi’s general director, suddenly took the stage and read poems.

Students of Dena Upakara

I have recently been following the activities of the students at special shool for deaf girls Dena Upakara in Wonosobo, Central Java. I have been granted a special access by the Catholic sisters who run the school. Dena Upakara itself was founded in 1938—it celebrated its 75th anniversary last year. Will try to keep following the girls until next year.
