“The question is not what you look at but what you see.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Street photography is the most challenging form of discipline because it is spontaneous, unpredictable, and a reflection of lifestyle and culture, good and bad. The documentation of candid moments in public trains you to be a keen observer, sheds your inhibitions, teaches you to socialize better, and gives you faster motor reflexes. It is good training to spot decisive moments that separates ordinary snapshots into memorable art.
In 1997, street photography in Indonesia started my journey to photojournalism, eventually pushing me to explore portrait, landscape and travel which is part of the field I specialize in. Come take a walk with me for one day, as I share how I observe, compose and capture scenes in a different, thought provoking perspective.
