Imperfect frame is Indonesia's travel photo project created by French photographer Marius Moragues supported by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia aiming to preserve the archipelago’s heritage. The project envisions the exploration and documentation of Indonesia by motorbike over a period of ten years, focusing on its ethnic groups, cultures, and destinations.
Indonesia impresses by its variety of landscapes and destinations—but all those travel experiences wouldn’t be the same without the people who live there. For my part, I was drawn by people’s incredible kindness and hospitality which made me instantly connect with them in a special way. The solidarity we can find in Indonesia is beyond anyone can expect and the people are some of the kindest, warmest human beings I have ever met. I am today proud to be able to pay tribute to Indonesia my own way and invite you to discover this wonderful country!
I first arrived in Indonesia and more specifically in Jambi in September 2015. At that time, I was a backpacker traveling throughout Southeast Asia eager to discover new cultures and meet new people, while teaching English as a volunteer for schools and organizations.
I am a former landscape photographer and never thought I would someday photograph people. I’ve become interested in photographing them because of the meaning I am able to put behind my human encounters. I love to visually transcribe life’s raw emotions, especially from children and elderly. They all have a story to tell which I am always eager to listen and learn from. Imperfect frame aims at inspiring other people through meaningful travel encounters in order to give a unique life’s perception and philosophy.
I use Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
I am not proposing any such courses at the moment. However, I have the plan to release in the future a full online video course that will teach you how to edit travel portraits.
If you feel there may be an opportunity to work together, I’d love to hear from you. As a photographer, I believe in staying true to my values and ethos, and want to work with those who share the same spirit of Imperfect Frame. If you have an idea of how we could work together, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
In order for me to work correctly, I usually travel by myself only. But, if for some reasons you happen to be in the same area than the one I currently am, depending on the nature of the purpose and of my personal schedule, then you can surely follow me. Check my Instagram to know my latest position.
I’m glad you wish to learn from me! Unfortunately, Imperfect frame is unable to facilitate photo workshops at the moment. However, I will be working in the near future on some workshops, both for groups and one-on-one. I will be sure to update you through my social media channels and newsletter when such workshops are possible.
I always look forward to work with talented people in the creative industry and I’m glad you appreciate this photo project! If you think you share the same spirit of Imperfect Frame, please email me with your ideas at email@example.com.
Just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll look to get back to you as soon as I can.
