Mentoring for photo exhibition with Publisia Photo Club UGM

CeritaManusiaPPC2016

For the past three months (more or less) I have been mentoring a group of students from Publisia Photo Club (PPC) Universitas Gadjah Mada Yogyakarta as they are preparing their annual exhibition. The exhibition will take place this weekend at Kelas Pagi Yogyakarta gallery. For this mentoring, I do not set results as a goal, but rather emphasise on the process. As a mentor, I have to realise that they are students, not professionals, and perhaps do not wish to be professional photographers, too. So as much as I can, I try to contextualise what I wish to share with them by not only focusing on photography, and especially not only the technical side of it.

I tell them that it all starts and eventually ends with the story. So that’s what we should be focusing on, on how to find the story, how to approach the subject and dig deeper without losing focus, and finally how to present the story visually with a certain perspective. Last but not least, congratulations for the exhibition to all participants: Hanif Mufadlilah, Hestakhia Pranawati, I Gusti Ayu Viola, Yunica Murti Nastiti, Nirwana Pradana Maharani, Annisa Astri Hermantyo, Deana Fahira, Mutiara Puteri Amelia, Anisa Nur Aini, Lalitya Pradnya Pawestri, Muhammad Farhan Anwar, Anisa Meitasari; also those who helped: Anandhio Weiza Prashardika, Balya Galuh Jiehan Safitri, Chaisar Ahmad, Muh. Faruq Hakiki, Nadia Utama Siregar, Priscilla Asoka Kenasri, Putri Laksmi Nurul Suci, Afifah Nuranian, Muh. Alzaki Tristi, Diatami Muftiarini; and all members of Publisia Photo Club. ∎
