TRANQUILLITY less expected, more achieved

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Australia | Friday, July 5, 2013 | 5 photos

If I may resume myself in three keywords, these would be: visual, photography, and adventure. These could describe the way I choose not only my education backgrounds, bachelor of communications and master in media and cultural studies, but also my social life.

I have lived in eight different cities, seven in Indonesia and one in Australia. It is not only the passion of travel that lead me to this semi-nomad lifestyle, yet cosmopolitan encounters with other people, different cultures, and various natural environment that I enjoy the most. I have learnt from other people stories, fears, and hopes. I have also been enriched by the variety and cross-experience of cultures, as well as by the different scent, the vision, or even the heat of diverse environment.

The most significant “tool” for me to gain these kind of learning process is by visual media, mainly photography. I learned the technique during my university life, but I discover the very perspective of this media in my social and cultural encounters. This is the way I understand photography as my very best friend to understand the world, the relations among its elements, and also myself.
