About Me

Rosa Panggabean is a documentary photographer based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Previously she worked as a staff photojournalist in a local news agency. In her body of works, she always focuses on the event and its social context . She's always interested in human story and its relation, that includes identity, social change, human rights, and environment.  On her photography practices, she mostly captures the moment, but she also explores another approach such as potraits, landscapes, and symbols. 

Through her experiences, she is ready to perform assignments in editorial, photo consultant for NGO, travelling photography, event documentation, video footages, and advertorial campaign.
