“The Beat of Copenhagen”, my street photography exhibition at the CommArt 2015

In the late spring 2008 I visited Copenhagen, Denmark, for a week. It was a short-stay business trip. However, this city in the northern part of Europe “talked” to me quite a lot. I would say this photo presentation is my impression of Copenhagen in a glance, yet shows the splendid senses of this dynamic city. I was overwhelmed with the beat of Copenhagen, especially with three iconic images of this urban area: the city of design, the city of bicycle, and the city of cosmopolitan people. I tried to understand these three unique characteristics of the city through visual representation of street photography.

Di penghujung akhir musim semi 2008 saya mengunjungi Copenhagen, Denmark, untuk sebuah acara singkat satu pekan. Selama singgah di sana ternyata kota di sisi utara Eropa ini “berbicara banyak” kepada saya. Impresi Copenhagen in a glance melekat kuat di benak saya dan menunjukkan denyut kota yang dinamis ini. Denyut itu setidaknya mengajak saya hanyut dalam tiga sisi citra kota ini yang paling kuat, yaitu kota desain, kota sepeda, dan kota dengan warga kosmopolitan. Dalam kesekejapan saya berusaha memahami ketiga kekhasan ruang hidup urban tersebut melalui bahasa foto jalanan (street photography).
