Monday Photo Blog: Return to Indonesia

September 26th, 2011 by

Of any country besides the US, Indonesia is probably the best represented here on MRR’s Monday Photo Blog. We get a steady stream of submissions from Indonesia photographers. Today’s came back in June from A. Okhi Irawan, a longtime MRR reader. Most of these photos are from the early ’00s “where the Indonesia’s despotic goverment change into reform age, and re-shape how punks movement during that age.”

Thanks for the photos  A. Okhi!

In this subculture areas, “Bandung Underground” was the common terms to describes whats HC/Punk kids rebellions and formed the scenes. I’ve been travelled and witnessed through this one of hectic-masses-enthusiasts. Probably, you should check it out by yourself.

Bandung underground is most active hardcore/punk scene in the world. Ranging from musicianship into community workers.
