Photographer Hengki Koentjoro was born in Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia in 1963 and later graduated from the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California where he studied video production as his major, and minored in fine art photography. He and his family now lives and works in Jakarta where he takes these ethereally surreal photographs of the Southeast Asian landscape.

For Hengki, photography is not just a way of expressing his most inner soul, but also a means of creating a window to the world where through his pictures the unseen and the unspoken can be grasped. Driven by the desire to explore the mystical beauty of nature, he develops his sense and sensibility through black and white fine art photography.

I personally was absolutely awestruck  by Hengki’s work and hope you guys will find his work as inspiring as I did:
