TELL US ABOUT YOUR SELF ?
Muhammad Hidayat (b. 1982) lives in Aceh, Indonesia. where he works as a finance section staf for a government sector. He began to pursue photography seriously in 2015 and is currently focused on fine art and expressionistic photography. His photographs are very personal, lifting the story from his life experiences. For him, photography more then just pressing the shutter button, but a means for pouring out one’s feelings and imagination as well.
WHAT DRIVES YOU TO TAKE PICTURE ?
For me photography is a treasure and the most beautiful thing I have today. Photography is a place or medium where I can express life and vent my feelings, emotions and thoughts just in photography. I can see the world where my childhood is and I can imagine things that have not happened in me yet and I can feel the future and dream about life through photography. Photography changed not only my way of thinking but photography changed the way I felt something and brought me back to remember everything that happened in my life very clearly and clearly.
Black and white are characters from my photos. I do not really get too emotionally in color. But black and white photography is a life for me so I really love black and white photography.
For me, photography more then just pressing the shutter button, but a means for pouring out one’s feelings and imagination as well.
WHICH PHOTOGRAPIC STYLE DO YOU FEEL YOURSELF ?
I think that working on personal project photography is very interesting. and street photography is a challenge, because you have to feel the state and reality of society, especially in my country Indonesia
