E.Q. black-and-white photos at Cahya

JAKARTA (JP): Photographer Eky Tandyo is to hold his first solo exhibition this year at the Cahya photo gallery at Plaza Menteng on Jl. Cokroaminoto, Central Jakarta beginning Tuesday.

During the March 9 - March 30 exhibition, the photographer better known as E.Q. will display his 60 black-and-white shots made between 1997 and 1998.

Under the theme 'A Journey', E.Q.'s works on display will be mostly about broken stairs, windows, doors and alleys of old buildings in Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Cirebon and Solo.

"It's about an inner self, searching for something and a journey," he said on Saturday.

For many, the portraits may simply mean loneliness.

According to E.Q., all pictures on display are to be offered for sale to visitors at prices between Rp 1.5 million and Rp 2 million each. (bsr)
