Eka Nickmatulhuda is a storyteller and photography is only one of her many medium to tell stories.
She's born, raised and based in Jakarta, Indonesia. But she travels to many places in her country and beyond. At home and when she travels, she documents life with her camera, as if it matters. Because even though being a photographer trying her ass off to survive the photo industry is so damn hard, she still believe in the cause. That what she does; be a storyteller and documenting fragments of life.. does matter.
In addition to be a storyteller, she's also an educator and manage the community of Women Photograph Indonesia. Doing photography has taken her to places, introduced her to the lives of many thus inspires her to give back to the community aiming to elevate the voices of Indonesian women + nonbinary visual storytellers into the world.
She’s been taking photos since 2005, started as a photojournalist, but currently making her way as a professional not only doing photography, but also shooting video, do some fixering for European TV and producing content of her own. She puts together a website just in case someone asks if she has any. It is a showcase of photo works to convince others if they ever wanted to hire her for a photography service. So if you’re here for that, then please drop an email.
But if you’re thinking you might feel inspired, see more of her on Instagram and say hi. If neither, then.. thank you for stopping by. Now leave, go find your happiness elsewhere. ^.^
