Last month I was back in Bali shooting the new Mejekawi tasting kitchen for KuDeTa. Mejekawi is hi-tech with cool contemporary interiors and a great view over the ocean. It was a pleasure to work again with the chefs - Phil Davenport, Ben Cross and Will Goldfarb. Their food looks stunning which makes my job that much easier.

Last year I started a project on taman mini indonesia indah - taman mini is a theme park located in east jakarta. It was the brainchild of then 1st lady Tien Soeharto and was opened in 1975. I'm shooting this project on 4x5" colour negative film. I recently got back my 1st set of contact prints from the lab, and very excited by the results. I will be back shooting more this summer.

Last month I was up in Bandung shooting a feature for Monocle magazine. The weather was really bad with only a couple of hours light in the morning before it clouded over, and then heavy rain every afternoon. Combined with the notorious bandung traffic made for a challenging few days! The feature is now out in the July issue of Monocle
