Community? It’s the next more challenges for me. Well, for this week, I’d like to show a tradition in Semarang, Central Java for welcoming fasting month. It’s called Dugderan, and at the time I had a chance to document people dressed up in accordance to their community and showed their wonderful costumes. I love to shoot cultural event, why? because it’s the time where I can see people dressed up in their traditional attires (show up the community, right?), as it’s hard to see it in our daily lives coz of globalization. Here they are! Taken from Dugderan event 2011
Javanese attires 2
The attires 3
Combination between Kebaya and hijab (still community)
High schoolers dressed up in Manchu Chinese attires (some combined with hijab)
In another ocassion, I also took some pictures in Semarang Balinese Festival 2013 held welcoming ‘Nyepi’ day which is celebrated among Balinese Hindus. There were fashion shows, music performances and preparing canang (offerings).
