Our street photography tour returns! In its second edition, JIPFest invites Beawiharta and Roe as mentors, each of whom will lead a small group of eight participants around Jakarta’s Old Town and beyond.

Beawiharta is a photojournalist with 20 years of experience, including at Reuters news agency. He is a co-founder of 1000Kata and receiver of Honorable Mention at Sasakawa Sport Award in Tokyo (1993). He was on duty in Dili, East Timor (now Timor Leste) in the midst of liberation conflict, as well as post-tsunami Aceh (2004-2005).

Ruben, or better known as Roe, is a street and social documentary photographer based in Jakarta. To him, street photography provides many surprising moments. Until now, he is still learning to develop various approaches to become a visual storyteller.
