Black and White Atmospheric Photography

Born in Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia, fine art photographer Hengki Koentjoro is best known for his breathtaking landscape photography of Indonesia amidst the shades of black and white.

Through his work, Koentjoro discusses his true purpose in life’s journey of expression, exploring along the borderlines of light and shadow, such as yin and yang. His focus lies on complexity in the minimalist, diving into the spiritual and the physical.
Koentjoro exerts Miksang, a special form of photography in which the artist uses the camera to express his visual perceptions exactly as he experiences them.

Translated from the Tibetan, Miksang means “good eye”, asking the beholder to see the world in a new way, without overlays of meaning and value, pleasure, dislike, or disinterest. Miksang photography tends to bring the observer back into the original contemplation state of the artist’s picture. By bringing our mind’s attention, our awareness, in our sense of sight, it is possible for us to see vivid and mind stopping insights fully and completely without distraction. If this state is reached, the beholder connects with what he sees deeply and intimately.
