#TemenTemenSelebriti ( My Celebrity Friends)
Pose with the celebrity, idol or famous people is one of the 'ancient custom' in the behavior of photography.
We often see pictures of relatives with their idol or celebrity. Everyone has been doing it.
Currently, with various social networking facilities (facebook/twitter/instagram etc), this practice became more frequently encountered. Many people vying to show off their personal existence.
With or without intentional, this behaviour has become a marker to get recognition from the social field around them.
In this series, I make a couple of self portrait and combine it with James Hetfield, lead vocal and guitarist from the worlds famous rock band, Metallica.
I tried to present togetherness, closeness and intimacy with the celebrity in the hyperbolic ways to respond this social behaviour that happening today.
