FKY 2008

Yesterday saw the opening of the 20th Festival Kesenian Yogyakarta (Yogyakarta Art Festival), which is held from June 7th to July 7th in Vredeburg fortress and Taman Budaya Yogyakarta. Events in the festival range from stage performance by local and international artists, art fair, competitions, and many more. See their official website for more information and schedule if you're interested.

Went to the opening parade and met... well, pretty much everyone I guess. Aul, Alwan, Lucas, Suryo, Erik, Naga & Lucy, Sinyo, just to name a few... as there was perhaps a hundred or so shooters in the street.

Few snaps around the event:

Even when I know that I won't really enjoy shooting the show for the rather predictable scenes in the place where the main attraction is (not to mention limited movement due to the crowding), it's still good enough to just walk around the place and basically look at directions that everyone else isn't looking. You're bound to get some good finds if you're attentive enough.

Those cops in riot gear and that dude leading them look like a Sci-Fi Movie!

Neat collection of fun shots.
