I was really excited to see that my book Eastward was chosen in the photobooks category of the PDN Photo Annual 2012. This is particularly satisfying for me as this was fully produced here in Jakarta by R&W publishing. With design by Hermawan Tanzil and his brilliant team at Le BoYe and printing by Indonesia printer. Check out the online winners gallery
After 3 months non-stop photography + travels I'm now back home, editing/processing + retouching. Its been a fun time : shooting motion at the dharmawangsa hotel in Jakarta, editorial for Monocle in yogyakarta + Afar in Bali. Some commercial work for the new Keraton at the Plaza in Jakarta, and KuDeTa in Bali. A manic 12 day architecture + interiors shoot for Wallpaper/Phaidon Jakarta city guide. A wedding and pre-wedding in Margaret river in western australia and a climb of Mount Kerinci (3805m) in west sumatra. I have dusted down my 4 x 5" and getting ready to start a personal project here in Jakarta. so nice to be working with this camera + colour neg film again!!! By July I should be able to start posting some images from this project.
