Behind The Celebration, photo essay by Tomi Saputra

Behind The Celebration

Disetiap semua perayaan terjadi pengulangan momen tentang apa yang dirayakan. Hal yang mainstream terjadi tiap tahunnya. Hanya perubahan kecil yang berganti pada konten acara.

Namun tidak bisa disangkal, meskipun perayaan menampilkan hal yang sama setiap tahun, antusias dari masyarakat untuk hadir menonton pertunjukan pada perayaan tersebut tidak kunjung reda. Mungkin karena hanya penasaran atau karena minimnya hiburan murah untuk rakyat.

Pada project ini saya mengambil foto ketika perayaan Cap Go Meh pada dua kota berbeda di provinsi Jawa Barat, Indonesia. Di kota Bogor, masyarakat berbondong-bondong tetap bertahan menonton meskipun dilanda hujan, sedangkan di kota Bandung, pengunjung hadir tumpah ruah ketika sedang panas teriknya.

Festival are always being feasted annually, and usually there are small things change in content event each year.

However, it can’t be denied. Although the festival shows the same thing in every year, people are always enthusiastic to watch and celebrate it. Maybe it could be because they are curious about it, or because there are view free event to entertain people these day.

In this project, I took a picture about celebration of Cap Go meh festival at two different city in West Java, Indonesia. People are so excited and still watched the show even though it was raining in Bogor, while in Bandung, people attended the festival when sunshine’s brightly.
