I am teaching photo story workshop for the staff of Combine Resource Institution. This workshop is not result-driven but more process-oriented, as it is some sort of an internal training for the staff’s capacity building. The workshop is not intensive (compressed into a week like similar workshop), as the staff have work to do during the week. This workshop is a follow-up from the discussion we had last May. ∎
I will be jurying a photo story contest for students, organised by students of Universitas Mercu Buana Yogyakarta. This event is their first, but I’m looking forward to seeing great works submitted to the contest. Submissions are open until 30 May 2017.
(UPDATE: Deadline has been extended until 7 June 2017).
I am invited to participate in a discussion on diversifying the content of community-based media by Combine Resource Institution on 23 May 2017 at Combine’s office in Bantul, Yogyakarta. In the discussion, I will share a little bit about photo stories in community-based media. The discussion is free of charge and open for public. ∎
The book “Kisah Mata” by Seno Gumira Ajidarma has recently been reissued with minor revision and addition. The publisher is holding a book discussion and photography coaching clinic to mark the occasion. The author will be present along with Kris Budiman and me. The book discusses about photography and meaning in philosophical discourse, and was originally written as a master’s thesis by the author, who is now the Rector of Jakarta Arts Institute (IKJ). Kris Budiman will comment on the discourse as an image reader, while I will add another perspective as an image maker. The event will take place on 9 March 2017 at Auditorium Institut Français Indonesie (IFI) Yogyakarta.
I will share my experience on photojournalism and photo stories in this workshop, organised by Clapeyron student press publishing of Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Gadjah Mada Yogyakarta. Also speaking in this workshop is photojournalist Taufan Wijaya.
