The Captivating Fine Art Work Of Hengki Koentjoro

The Captivating Fine Art Work Of Hengki Koentjoro

Hengki Koentjoro has quite the delicate eye for black and white fine art photography. His images have such a subtle and simple subject matter yet to me are very powerful. I would guess most of these images were shot on film due to the organic nature and grain to them. "He acquired his knowledge of multimedia production at brooks institute of photography, Santa Barbara, California, USA. Majoring in video production with minoring in fine art of photography, he graduated in 1991. Photography is not just a way of expressing his most inner soul but also 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 the elements of fine art photography. His freedom of expression is more reflected in the elaboration and exploration of black and white. Photography can never be separated from the aspects of making the common things unusual, welcoming the unexpected, indulging and embracing ourselves with the joy of photography as well as believing that anything is possible. Hengki now lives in Jakarta, Indonesia with his wife and three children." Check out his website or his 500px to view all of his work.

I see a lot of square compositions - 6x6 perhaps? B&W underwater looks fantastic, dream like, and downright alien in that shot of the whale shark. How humbling it must be to swim with giants! 

these are fucking lovely.  The volcanoes mostly convinced me.
