About the artwork

‘I’m sharing a story about the lives that are closest to me as a migrant, a city dweller, a lower-middle-class citizen, and a worker. I try to capture moments of ‘bitterness and happiness’ that represent the other side of life in a big city. Through this project, I want to invite everyone to enjoy Jakarta the way its residents do. My photography tells stories of people on the outskirts – those who are forgotten, who come and go, who pass by the streets, who blend in with the wind and dust. They are the driving force behind the city, the ones who have transformed Batavia into South-East Asia’s most populous metropolitan city. In my photographs I want to show a liminal space, a space where we can live together while continually asking, ‘When will these hundreds of skyscrapers provide shelter for us who live below them?’

Poster - Megacities, Jakarta



Megacities is an ambitious project bringing the creative vision of ten leading street photographers into dialogue with the urban environment of ten global megacities – cities with a population of more than 10 million people.

With origins in the 1930s, and the advent of 35-millimetre film and handheld cameras, street photography came into its own as photographers became able to move freely and unobtrusively while taking photographs. The result was a dynamic genre of photography centred on the built environment and the behaviour, activity and experiences of urban populations. Street photography extends the descriptive and didactic capacities of photography to the realm of creative, interactive engagement and reflection, and in this project, offers a contemporary account of how we live.

The work of the ten photographers will feature in a dynamic, immersive environment, presenting a thought-provoking vision of the twenty-first century urban phenomenon – the megacity.
