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.
