Award Shortlist   


By Rarindra
His name is Prapto. He used to be a master of puppet in his hometown in Central of Java, back in 40's.' I started when Indonesia was under Queen Wilhelmina of Holland (before President Soekarno era) and ended his career as master of puppet in 1980 after lost almost all his teeth'.
He is an artist-born in my opinion. Never stop singing, dancing and laughing during photo session (for a commercial actually). Very energic and he has very good hearing and sighting in his 83 years old.
Now, he is only a bicycle mechanic in West of Jakarta for living. Just take a look at his nail, he was busy with his work when I took him for the session.
