Images from recent assignment shooting Indonesian capital of Jakarta for Discovery, Cathay Pacific’s inflight magazine.
My photograph of Iran’s Dasht-e Lut (Lut Desert), one of the country latest addition into UNESCO World Heritage Site, becomes the cover of Sueddeutsche Zeitung Magazin’s travel issue, published in October 19, 2018. Huge thanks to Jakob Feigl.
Final publication of assignment in Iran for DestinAsian Indonesia. The images and words (I also happened to write again after so long) are published in April-June 2018 issue of the magazine. During the assignment, which highlights Iran after most of the sanctions being lifted, I managed to see the many part of the country: the bustling Terhan, Lut Desert in the south, and the Caspian region in the north. Read the full story here (in Indonesian only). And some extra images can be seen here.
Publication from a recent assignment from Mabuhay, Philippine Airlines Inflight Magazine, March 2018. A feature about Indonesian food revolution.
Last spring, I finally got my chance visiting Azerbaijan during a travel assignment for DestinAsian Indonesia. Although the work revolved around the capital of Baku, I managed to venture out a bit to Xinaliq, one of the highest village in the Caucasus. It's great that after three years, I kickstarted myself to write again. The feature, which was published last month, can be read here (in Indonesian only). Below are some photos from the trip:
Some random images from the recent two-weeks trip around Central Europe for DestinAsian Indonesia.
Sometimes, you just have to arrive back in a place to see what you're missing. Last June, I visited Taichung, the third largest city in Taiwan, assigned by Destinasian Indonesia. I have been to Taiwan two years ago exploring the area around Taipei for a different magazine. But I had no interest (and time) to go beyond that. And then Taichung came as a pleasant surprise.
Let's make it really short, here are some photographs from the trip.
This is how the publication turned out in Destinasian Indonesia September-October 2014 Issue.
Few days back, I just realized that it has been more than a year since my last post. Time passed so quick and that's terrible for this blog, extraordinarily terrible. For now at least, no second glance, I'm up for blogging again. Will I post regularly? Honestly, I have no idea yet. But will see if this new blog outlook will bring something good. So, back in March, I was shooting around Magelang, Central Java, for a main travel feature in the May-June edition of DestinAsian Indonesia, the second edition of the magazine. I've been in Magelang before, but that was long time ago. And to my surprise, just like Tony Wheeler who've been always ignored this city in his Indonesia edition of Lonely Planet, I've actually missed many charms about this place, literally.
The trip itself took me to Oei Hong Djien Museum, Selogriyo (the Ubud of Central Java), some less visited temples (you'll meet no other curious tourists other than yourself, and there are more than 70 other temples around), and some great resorts (I didn't usually find any resort stay worth to be the highlight of my trip but who can resist the joy at Villa Borobudur).
The shooting conditions were great, and a lot of photo opportunities around. I just can't complain.
Well, here's the complete tearsheet and you can read the whole story here in Bahasa.
