July. Man oh man, what a month.

All through last month, most of us Indonesian Muslims were fasting due to Ramadhan, and it was followed by Idul Fitri holiday and celebration. Naturally, all of us were busier than usual, therefore had to push back our July session to August 7.

So, although it’s not July anymore, here at Creative Mornings Jakarta, we’re still on to Collaborate theme.

From Creative Mornings HQ:

We’re told that no man is an island. We’ve all had the opportunity to share great ideas, build exceptional things, and create something beautiful. Artistic collaborations throughout history have had their own way of propelling creativity, and often it’s the teamwork that leads to something remarkable. This month, 117 cities will be celebrating the theme of Collaborate.

This month’s theme was chosen by our Amsterdam chapter and the banner was photographed by the incredible Tory Williams.

For the upcoming session, CreativeMornings Jakarta proudly present Ridzki Noviansyah from The Photobook Club Jakarta.

Ridzki is a communication consultant and part-time writer, editor and photographer. He co-founded The Photobook Club Jakarta in 2013 as a platform of collaboration, discussion and sharing. Ridzki’s works has been published in various national media, and he’s also always involved in various photobook projects, shows, and festivals.

For CreativeMornings Jakarta, Ridzki will explain about photobooks and why collaboration matters.

Photograph is a tangible item. It’s something you can look and hold in your hand. Pixels and negative is merely an incomplete form of photograph.

Photographs are usually can be either shown on walls. However, you can also print them in smaller form and combine them to become a form of publication called photobook. As simple as it sounds, however, a photobook is not merely a combination of pictures after pictures. nor is it a book about pictures. There is always a theme or narrative that the photographer(s) want to convey, and to achieve it, collaboration is highly essential.
