#iniNegriku: About Indonesia by Nine Photojournalists


From exotic nature, heterogenous culture to friendly people are some to briefly describe Indonesia, and nine Indonesian photojournalists try to describe it through a new photo book entitled “#iniNegriku” (This is My Country). One of Southest Asian nations, Indonesia is also called “Nusantara” (Indonesian archipelago) which is made up of thousands of islands.

The 180-page book contains a visual journey of nine photojournalists – Ahmad Zamroni (Forbes Indonesia), Beawiharta (Reuters), Dita Alangkara (Associated Press), Edy Purnomo (freelance), Mast Irham (EPA), Peksi Cahyo (bola.com), Prasetyo Utomo (Antara), Sumaryanto Bronto (Media Indonesia) and Yuniadhi Agung (Kompas) – in capturing the people’s daily life in ten towns/areas in Indonesia: Ende, Putusibau, Langgur, Ternate, Banyuwangi, Sibolga, Sumba, Sorong, Berau and Bima.

“Hopefully the ‘#iniNegriku’ photo book would be further confirmed that Indonesia is remarkable and would awaken our conscience that we are destined to take care oh Nusantara,” says the press release on the book sent to Exposure.

Presented by 1000kata in collaboration with Garuda Indonesia and Samsung NX1, the book is now available for pre-order until January 5, 2016 with the price of IDR 225,000 (soft cover) and IDR 325,000 (hard cover) – the normal price will be IDR 275,000 and IDR 375,000 respectively.
