Jakarta (ANTARA) - A photojournalism exhibition organized by ANTARA News Agency to commemorate National Press Day earlier this month showcased the history of Indonesia's press from the independence to the contemporary era.

ANTARA President Director Akhmad Munir stated on Friday (February 16) that the exhibition is hosted at the Graha Bhakti Antara Building in Pasar Baru, Central Jakarta, a recently revitalized cultural heritage that has stood for almost a century.

"ANTARA finally got the opportunity to revitalize the building to be ANTARA's head office. We hope it will also mean revitalization of ANTARA's spirit to struggle, as a state-owned media, to work for the interest of the nation and the country," Munir stated while opening the exhibition.

Meanwhile, Indonesian Journalists Association (PWI) Chairperson Henry C. H. Bangun commended ANTARA's exhibition, organized with the theme "Press, Democracy, and Development," for showcasing contributions of the Indonesian press to the nation.

"Election moments captured on photos displayed in this exhibition affirmed that Indonesia is indeed the world's fourth-largest democracy," Bangun emphasized.
