Studio Visit

So yesterday, I had another visit with a photographer here in Yogya.

Jim Allen Abel.

We met for a little over an hour.  I am quite interested in some of his work.

I much enjoyed our conversation.  We talked about the differences between contemporary photography in the States as opposed to Indonesia.  Like many of the people I am looking at in attempt to organize this exhibition, Jimbo is part of the first generation of photographers in Indonesia.  We talked about his experiences trying to get his work accepted in Indonesia.

We also had some interesting conversation about American politics.
