Abstract
Still life photography has long been used as a medium of expression and for conveying information and ideas, as well as representing the identity of a person or a group. Still life photos can touch the heart of the viewers and make them feel connected with the stories behind the photos. Thanks to the rise of mobile photography, creating still life photos is now easier and faster, with just a few clicks on a camera application available in every smartphone. This type of photography is also facilitated with various digital darkroom applications and social media as a publishing platform. Still life photographs using mobile phones can be an alternative medium to tell the story about Jakarta urban families life during the COVID-19 PSBB. Everyday objects closely related to the photographer, such as dog leashes, an air conditioner, a glass, a wiper stick, and a burger can aesthetically tell stories about a home. In order to make the stories relatable and enjoyable for the viewers, proper research methodology and design method are required. The author used qualitative research methodology to collect information and data about the life of urban families in Jakarta under the implementation of PSBB. As the starting point for the design method, data and information gathering is followed by brainstorming, conceptualization, experimentation and development, and execution.
