How odd we humans be for we depend upon the division of lines and color to create any whole picture. Yet when staring at each other divisions keep us from creating anything whole. ©Westly Shakespeares Nice Photo by +Hengki Koentjoro

➤ Bowie's last wishes: Bali and Buddhists
The rock legend wanted his ashes scattered on the Indonesian island "in accordance with the Buddhist rituals."
“I wanted something as unlike the Caribbean as possible,” said Bowie in the 80s, explaining the property’s Indonesian touches. “It’s a whim personified. I love a good cliché, and this house, for me, is just the most delightful cliché. What you have to realize is that Mustique is a fantasy island.”
Now, as we mourn the death of such a visionary legend, take a moment to enjoy Bowie singing in "Bahasa", fierce as ever.

Brilliant :) Just as I'm making plans to visit Bali again. I was devastated the day he died. But learning that Bowie had ties to Bali brought a smile to my face. Thank you so much, Hengki.

Counting the ways ...

 Hengki Koentjoro is an accomplished photographer, specialising in capturing the spectral domain that lies amidst the shades of black and white. Born in Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia on March 24th 1963, he proceeded to pursue further education in Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California—an expedition that plunged him into the professional arena of video production and fine art photography. Childhood introduction to camera on his 11th birthday is by now an earnest love affair that involves an elaborate choreography of composition, texture, shapes and lines.

 Upon his return to Indonesia, Hengki settles in Jakarta as a freelance videographer and video editor for nature documentaries and corporate profiles. Delving into what he believes to be his true purpose in life's journey of expression, he indulge himself in the art of black and white photography on the side. Exploring along the borderlines of light and shadow, yin and yang. Celebrating complexity in the minimalist. Diving into the spiritual in the physical.

 "Photography can never be separated from the aspects of making the common things unusual, welcoming the unexpected, indulging and embracing ourselves with the joy of photography"—Hengki Koentjoro, 2013
