The HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY in Indonesia Friday, Dec. 15 @ 7PM
The impressive book, A History of Photography in Indonesia: From the Colonial Era to the Digital Age, looks at the development of photography from the beginning and traces its uses in Indonesia from its invention to the present day. In particular, it addresses the impact of photography on colonialism, independence, and democratization. The book’s editor, Brian C. Arnold, will illuminate this subject’s medium and history, as well as his own experiences in Indonesia.
