Holiday Project (2004)

Positively, Photography supposed to be an ideal means to reconfigure the world’s facts and what really happened inside, it also could be an important instrument of Cartesian accordingly, tracking any footprint left, besides its neutrality and impersonality. The emerging of Digital technology as if an ironic progress for the photography world, especially to its ability to change, add and even “create” the event.

We’ll tried to make a simple simulation through all of those works on human perception towards events and how technology could bring those events altogether.

Some people on our works are ordinary men around MES 56 neighborhood, which are not the citizen of Jakarta and already had much presume about “A (short) visit to Jakarta”. We asked them which photos they’d prefer bringing home in so many places they’d choose if they have an occasion going to the city? To Mr. Rudi, Holiday in Jakarta is visiting Monas (National Monument)!

One can understand here the emotion felt by the whole world on discovering photography: a dream becoming reality. This catalogue books tells a story that began officially in 1839 in Paris, and continues up to today’s conceptual photography. Straddling art and science, photography cannot be understood without an understanding of its technique. Each of these prints is accompanied by a text about the history of the photograph and the photographer, telling us also about France and the French, and Paris.

Satu hal yang dapat dipahami adalah perasaan yang menggugah hati seluruh dunia atas penemuan   fotografi: mimpi menjadi kenyataan. Buku katalog ini bercerita bagaimana awalnya fotografi pada  tahun 1839 di Paris, dan berlanjut hingga hari ini seperti konsepsi fotografi yang kita pahami sekarang. Berada diantara seni dan science, fotografi tidak dapat dipahami tanpa pemahaman   prinsip teknis. masing-masing cetakan gambar disertai catatan sejarah fotografi tersebut dan si fotografernya, bercerita kepada kita tentang Paris di negeri Perancis dan orang-orangnya.
