Publikasi di The Jakarta Post



Sebuah seri foto saya terbit di Sunday Edition harian The Jakarta Post minggu kemarin, 6 April 2008. Seri foto tersebut mengenai perilaku "menunggu" orang-orang di Jakarta ketika berada di transportasi umum. Pengantar fotonya ditulis oleh Alex Supartono.

How do we occupy ourselves on the bus, mikrolet or metromini? What do the people around us do? Do we give it much thought? Or is it an insignificant part of our lives?

Jakarta-based photographer Rony Zakaria, 24, shows us how we spend our minutes, sometimes hours, moving from one point to another using public transportation.

His photographs capture the essence of ordinary events in our everyday worlds. Actually, we don't do much. We close our eyes and try to sleep, keeping one hand on our belongings. We look without really seeing. We isolate ourselves from people whose skin in fact touches our own.

Life in Jakarta, which has a population of about 12 million, is almost always communal. In public spaces, there are few niches set aside for individuals to sit alone.

Interesting photos ...

Kok jadi keinget diri sendiri yang kalau di bis selalu bengong, dengerin earphone atau baca-baca, anti sosial pokoknya. Soalnya takut digangguin tukang ngamen ... :)
