Jakartans celebrate city's birthday reminiscing the past

Photographs of contemporary Jakarta merged with images from its past at Darmawangsa Square in South Jakarta on Saturday, as Jakartans prepare to celebrate the city's 481st birthday.

The exhibition was one of the many events organized by the Creative Culture, Darmawangsa Square and The Occasion, wrapped in the "Story of Jakarta" celebration, which lasts from June 14 to June 22.

The photographs displayed are works by five young photographers -- Nancy Tenlima, Priyagung Adhitama, Wihdy Miftah, Poer Soebagyo and Dodit Wijanarko.

Most captured the lonely corners of the city and other interesting images -- like street lamps, windows of houses and buildings that are rarely seen.

Other than the works of the young photographers, there were also collections from Jakarta's History Museum, adding a romantic touch to the story of Jakarta.

"The Story of Jakarta" is on display at the Darmawangsa Square until Sunday, June 22 --when Jakarta will be one year older.
