Rarindra Prakarsa says:
“I like photography maybe since elementary school. I love to phototograph while my brothers/sister were love being photographed. Actually I like a visual art. So I entered graphic art faculty (Polytechnic of Indonesia) where I started to know photography theory and SLR use. I have my first SLR in 1995 (Two Nikon FM2 bodies and 5 lenses). Economic crisis in Indonesia had stopped my photographic activity in 1998. Then I start again in 2001 until I change my analog equipment to digital in 2004. I have EOS 350D and 4 lenses.
In the first time in photography, I am in love with Journalistic photography. This maybe because I work in newspaper (as a graphic designer). But now, 2 things that I love to photograph: Human and nature. Sometimes I photograph only human or only nature, but most of my photograph are mixing those two thing: Human and their environment. 2 kind objects is the most popular in my country. My formula for my photography with this 2 kind objects is “Pepole love photo that almost similar to paintings, while people also love paintings similar like a photo.” This formula is maybe simple but I belive that most people in the world would enjoy it. This only can reach in digital photography. So I mix my abilty in Photography technic and editing technic (Photoshop) that I learned in almost 15 years (about 1992).
Now, my photos are in some commercial use in Indonesia and some countries. I have my profiles in some media in my country and other countries. What can make me happy if the more people can enjoy my photos in the world. And I can share my beautiful country and beautiful people around me.”
