Rebel Riders is published on Das Magazin, January 2019. Very nice and simple layout.
It’s really unexpected that my project ‘Rebel Riders’ about the Indonesian Extreme Vespa community is becoming my very first monograph. The project was initially started only early last year during my participation of Obscura Photofestival’s Southeast Asian Photography Masterclass under mentorship of Jörg Brüggemann and Tobias Kruse. During the course of the project, my love of the subject started to grow. So after the masterclass was over I decided to continue the project. I wouldn’t say that the photographs only will be amazing, but it’s also because the one who designed it: Calin Kruse from Dienacht
Below are some sample pages from the photobook and also the newsprint index. The book is currently available for pre-order here. If you order it now before November 4, there will be a lot of extras coming along with the book (including free fine art print).

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.
