An exclusive visual selection
Beyond Java displays a mosaic rarely seen before. From 1 to 99 years old and above, to breathtaking life sceneries and amazing landscapes, I have screened more than 40,000 photographs from my travels and selected 150 frames to present you Indonesia in the most exquisite diversity a photo book could conceive it.
10,000 km of ethnological exploration
For the past three years, I explored Java island with my motorcycle as a travel photographer, putting into spotlight the locals with the relentless mission to promote Indonesia on a global scale. This is the first photo book aesthetically preserving the country’s cultural heritage that mainly focuses on its people and ethnic groups.
Go beyond your life perception
Beyond Java is a photo book but not only. It is also a well-thought-out concept of a travel diary filled with unique human encounters and inspiring life stories. This rendezvous with humanity encompasses some aspects of society that will make you look at the world with different eyes and ultimately change your perspectives.
“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.”
A book experience redefined
With over 200 pages, Beyond Java will immerse you above usual book experience thanks to its large photo dimensions (up to 40cm x 28cm!) and a dual-sided, near edge-to-edge printing in order to bring maximum emotion and wonderment.
Only premium materials
Feel at your fingertips the materials of the book hardcover and let guide yourself all the way through its inner pages with the excellent quality of the OJI Mat Art Paper, providing crisp and clear images.
