However, the students were free to choose what theme they would take in making the project. Fitri said, “The students are free to choose the theme because they usually are fixated on some particular design grips. In fact, the design itself is actually a free art”.
Basic Photography course exhibited 40 thematic photographs and brought a special theme for this exhibition which is “Life of Traditional Market”. The lecturer of Basic Photography course, Rahadi, conveyed that there is a reason why that theme was selected. He is interested in the interaction among people in traditional markets. They are the representation of the people in the neighborhood. When someone interacts with others in a traditional market, it means they interact with people in society indirectly. Rahadi said, “It is hoped that the students can directly interact with the subjects and take pictures closely”.
