My Scholarship entry - Gunung Lumut: Life and death

Indonesia | Sunday, 23 November 2014 | 5 photos

In my mind, there is a big responsibility for a photographer to convey a message according to the facts through the resulting image. And every image produced should have a message that can be enlightening for those who see it.

I tried to get to know every object image through interviews or early research in the hope I would be able to tell the story again through photographs. But I never know whether the photos I make has been recalled.

Yes, we had a lot of people who are able to produce beautiful photographs, but I think we still need a lot of photographers who can tell story well through photography. I want to have that ability. I want to be a photographer who is able to tell a story through photographs. More than that, my dream is to help people gain knowledge from the photos I make. Therefore, it will be a rare and very valuable opportunity to meet Jason. And it could be a way for me to reach the dream of becoming a professional photojournalist.
