LOST IN x ASYARI WIRANTIKO

Central Java – Yogyakarta (IDN)

This photo journal was taken at the end of June 2018 during my trip to Central Java – Yogyakarta. I decided to take my beast, Nikon F4, for the trip and a few of my favorite Kodak films. Yogyakarta had always been my favorite city after Surabaya here at Indo.

I think this is a city of the future because this is the only one, apart from every other city in the world, that still rules by the old royal law, contrary to many others that embrace a democratic system but leave the king as the only regional authority. During my trip, I was looking to shoot more landscape than people’s portraits to avoid a “fake moment” because the pure things/moments are just beautiful as they are. Even though, at the end of the day, I also went for a few photos of the locals.

I have always loved the manual mode of every camera (especially on film). It has a unique way to tell you about the moment. I try to avoid the automatic mode, in order to sharpen my thoughts and fingers. I don’t let the things set me.

@oiherve

I’m Asyari Wirantiko but most of my friends call me Oi (known as @oiherve), 26 years old. I was born in Surabaya and raised on the outskirts of Jakarta. My career has taken me from the creative sectors of interior design, to documentaries and photography. I’m very interested in the psychology of space, the hidden triggers of behavior and emotion, and the curious intersection between sight, touch and feeling.
