One of my photographs has been nominated as one of the best photos in the Travel Photography Competition held by the Delegation of the European Union to Indonesia and it was exhibit in Balai Kartini Jakarta, 18-19 October 2014. My photograph was taken in London. It was a huge installation of poppies.
About the installation (source from poppies.hrp.org.uk)
The major art installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London, marked one hundred years since the first full day of Britain’s involvement in the First World War. Created by artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper, 888,246 ceramic poppies progressively filled the Tower’s famous moat between 17 July and 11 November 2014. Each poppy represented a British military fatality during the war.
The poppies encircled the iconic landmark, creating not only a spectacular display visible from all around the Tower but also a location for personal reflection. The scale of the installation was intended to reflect the magnitude of such an important centenary and create a powerful visual commemoration.
All of the poppies that made up the installation were sold, raising millions of pounds which were shared equally amongst six service charities.
