“...a startling book of deliciously serene images....” - Michael Kenna, Photographer

Indonesian Hasselblad Master and international award-winning photographer Hengki Koentjoro journeys across the world’s largest archipelago, with the aim of capturing and immortalising the fleeting moments of underwater beauty. These moments are elegantly and delicately showcased in stunning monochromatic images, creating a series of tranquil and ethereal - but no less spectacular - glimpses of Indonesian waters.
-
Launched at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2015, Afterhours Books is proud to officially announce MONOHYDRA, a fine-art, black-and-white underwater photography book. This beautifully bound book is the first of its kind, complete with a special foreword by world-renowned American fine-art photographer Michael Kenna and fine-art gallerist Bob Tobin. Certainly a fine testament to Hengki’s expertise and unparalleled mastery in underwater monochromatic photography.

Introduction
BIOGRAPHY:

 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
