The Voices of Young Photographers in Indonesia
Three young and influential Indonesian photographers discuss today photography and how the artistic medium has affected their lives.
Reza Riwandi, Satrio Ramadhan and Dian Rockmad Bayutirto ( better known as Bayu), share similar stories. Individually, they share a keen eye for capturing beautiful moments. Collectively, they are pure visionaries with thousands of Instagram followers. The young men have enjoyed using the art of photography as their medium since high school, where they started out as mere enthusiasts. Over the years, they have matured to significantly influence the industry. Challenges and competitions arise, but the one thing that remains is their profound love for photography.
I asked the three young artists to share their journey with Indonesia Expat readers: their thoughts on the rise of digital photography, the role photography plays within the local creative industry, and their hopes for the future of Indonesian photography.
