Cephas Photo Forum Presentation: ENCOUNTERS by Rony Zakaria



“The only constant in life is change. Through time one’s life changes, a city develops, a journey continues or ends. In the last six years I lived in and out of Jakarta, I collect snapshots as I became part of the big city, and also when I travel, unattached from the system temporarily. It is a continuing voyage of witnessing dreams and hopes, which sometimes one step darker, and the other time, lighter. As like looking through a glass window, all seems absurd and yet real as reality. And we differently kept collecting questions that seeks for answers, the ones that is right for each of us, so we can keep on living through these encounters.”
