Streets of Jogja

170527-074-edited

Yogyakarta, Jogja to its friends, was a breath of fresh air – literally – after Jakarta. While Indonesia’s capital, as previously noted, is a massive, incomprehensible metropolis, Jogja is a friendly, laid-back city, more notable for its atmosphere than its sights, but easy to walk around and with an unhurried, familial vibe that I really liked. My visit coincided with the Ramadan fasting month, so the streets were perhaps less busy during the day than they would be normally, but there was still plenty going on and lots of pictures to take.

    I enjoy the way you capture ordinary people, and ordinary life on the streets. It’s reminded me of the photos I took on the streets of Yangon.
    Joga looks fascinating.

    Another fantastic series. I’m curious about your color, and the deep blacks – it has the look of film – do you process your photographs with film effects? Whatever you’re doing, it is distinctively your style, and the rich, warm colors work so well with the subject matter. I particularly admire the photo of the gray haired man with his legs crossed, under the (beautiful) shutter photo. And the Christian statue painting series – wonderful!

      Thank you, Jogja was a great place for photography. I process my pictures in Lightroom, but I don’t use any film presets. I have some presets of my own which I tend to use as a starting point, and ‘deep blacks’ and ‘rich, warm colours’ is a pretty good description of the look I’m aiming for.
