My Photo scholarship 2011 entry

Worldwide | Monday, 26 September 2011 | flickr photos



First thing is I already uploaded this set since June 2011. This set tell us about the other side of city which included the major river in Bandung, Cikapundung river. Cikapundung river had been forgotten for a long time, why I said that, because people usually see Cikapundung only as a river not a source of life. Some people especially the one who doesn't realize the main function of Cikapundung, just see Cikapundung as a stream of water. They throw trashes and other chemical waste to river and don't care about what will be happen in downstream area.

They forget there are many people use Cikapundung as a source of their life. People who live in river bank use Cikapundung to take a bath or even for drinking-water. For kids there, Cikapundung is their playground. And they pretending it's a great place to play. Because they don't have anything else except this river.

My name is Matiinu Iman Ramadhan, I live in Bandung, Indonesia. I'm 22 years old. My major is Biology, especially Ecology and Biosystematics. Photography has been my hobby since I was in senior high school. Since now I'm in my last year at college, so it's been more than 4 years. I love traveling. Especially to capture some sceneries, situations, or interactions that happen in my travel destination. I already visited some national park in Indonesia as a lecturer assistant or as a student in Project Ecology subject. Bali, Ujung Kulon, Baluran, are some places that I've been visited.

Being a photographer for National Geographic is my dream. Photography already help me to learn about life and of course to amuse my self. By seeing a photography, it helps me to see a world in different perspective and also help me to tell stories to my relatives. you can see matiinu.tumblr.com for my photoblog. Pick me yeah!
