My Top 17 favorite Indonesian lomohomes of 2014


Two years ago to celebrating Indonesia Independence Day every August 17th, I have an idea to make a list about my favoirite Indonesia lomographer . I choose 17 from the date of our Independence day. I can’t believe at that time so many positive feedback that I’ve got from the 17 lomographer that I adore also at other Indonesian lomographer who were not on the list and hoping they will be on the list next year. But when I made this list again last year , the lomographer who were hoping that they were on the list next year which is last year and I have put them on the list last year seems like didn’t interested anymore, also other lomographer on the list, maybe because they are too busy or didn’t care anymore. And this year I’m try to making this 17 list again and didn’t care if anybody care or no, I just writing what I feel about many great Indonesian people with many great talent and also good photo at their lomohomes. The list from one until 17 is based on alphabetical order, so it’s not a rank of the most favorite =p Enjoy

1. Abi a.k.a. @didjitalsin

From the story that I heard, he was one of the first lomographer from Bandung with my classmate @ngoki . I should put him on my first 17 fave list two years ago but I haven’t found his lomohomes. I actually never met him but I adore his photo using lomo camera at his facebook account long time ago. He shoot a lot of awesome cutting edge music scene gig in Bandung.

2. Aditya Handoyo a.k.a. @aditya-handoyo

I saw his lomohomes when click the tag “Indonesia” and he is very enthusiast with film. He always bought a lot of variety film that he haven’t try. Actually we rarely meet, only at Film Photography Day and once at Seni Abadi photo lab. Oh, he is also get an award of Lomo Home Of The Day couple month ago.

3. Aldo Kepank a.k.a. @caukulutuk

Just like @didjitalsin I also should put @caukulutuk at my first top 17 list two years ago but same with @didjitalsin I haven’t found his lomohomes at that time. His fisheye photo that my classmate @ngoki show to me at @ngoki ‘s macbook made me fall in love at the first sight with fisheye camera. So, beside @ngoki who introducing me to the world of lomography for the first time, @caukulutuk ’s fisheye photo also introducing me to my first love of fisheye camera. We met once at Lomonesia Bandung gathering couple years ago but didn’t chat at all because I’m too shy to talk to senior hahaha. Besides fisheye, his LC-A photo are also very stunning.

4. Arief Soemaryanto a.k.a. @vespa66

I met him for the first time at Lomonesia Bandung event couple years ago. At that time he is very quiet haha, until we always did a lomowalk with other Bandungnese we became a lomo friend now and also my friend when watching our fave local football club, Persib Bandung. He have a lot of great 2nd hand camera also many film. He is trusted informan in our group when some re-seller sell a great 2nd hand camera or film.

7. Ekeu Pratama a.k.a. @ekeupratama

Bachelor of Japan literature who are not enthusiast to work in Japan and now became a civil servant at Industry department in Jakarta, Indonesia. He have been a Lomo Home Of The Day and Photo Of The Day at international site for more than once. So I think I didn’t have to describe how great his photo is. One thing I learn from him is his spirit to do lomowalk. You can see the fire in his glasses hehehe, he is very careful with every shot he snap because film for us Indonesian is very expensive. Outside of photo thing he is a very good friend also The Beatles Mania just like me, yeah yeah yeah. I think it’s about the time to see him as a Lomo Amigo and Lomo Guru.

8. Fajar Adiputra a.k.a. @fadjaradiputra

I always admire an architect because their vision are just out of the box for usual thinker people like me. @fadjaradiputra is an architecture student and he have a deadly weapon named Nikon FM. With his FM he have producing hundred of great photo. I think it’s about the time to see him as a Lomo Home Of The Day, Photo Of The Day, Lomo Amigos and Lomo Guru.

10. Idham Aidilfi a.k.a. @idhamaidilfi

Film camera enthusiast who part-time worker and a college student too. He have a great 2nd hand camera with delectable cheap price. I think he is a smart buyer, unfortunately he is rare process his film, maybe because he is very busy doing work and college thing. But I can guarantee that he is one of Bandungnese analogue lover who fall in love with analogue lifestyle.

17. Yongky a.k.a. @yongkek

I knew him late, I should put him at my first 17 fave list two years ago but at that time I haven’t knew about his great skill. He made a great mix media art such as scratch the cliche and collage the photo which is very simple but never think of it before for usual inside the box thinker like me. Unfortunately he only upload a few of his photo at his lomohome. Maybe you could check his work at the link of his profile.

    @aditya-handoyo si pegawainya masukin 3 rol ke mesin sekaligus, rol pertama punya saya, ke2 & ke 3 punya si Adi. nah rol saya ini ga saya buka dulu selotipnya soalnya buru2 waktu itu si seni abadi lagi rame banget. biasanya mah kalo lagi ga rame selotip ga dibuka dulu juga ga masalah, saya pernah kok dan baiak2 saja, tapi waktu itu katanya langsung dimasukin 3 rol dan walhasil selotip di rol saya nyangkut di mesin dan menempel di rol si adi dan bikin mesin mati serta bikin 2 rol filmnya terbakar. maksud hati mau hemat 2 frame makanya di selotip malah dituding ma pegawainya sebagai biang perusak mesin & 2 rol si Adi yang kebakar. wah rasa bersalah banget terutama ma si adi, tapi ga merasa bersalah ma si seni abadi hahaha ya gimana ya, saya udah ratusan kali beli film slide expired mereka yang hasilnya super mengecewakan tapi saya ga bisa dan ga pernah protes. saya juga ga bisa dan ga pernah protes dengan hasil scan x-pro mereka yang lebay dan aneh. tapi waktu saya disalahin gitu sama pegawainya kemaren rasanya saya udah diblacklist dari sana, ya udahlah, tempat beli film dan nyuci scan bukan cuma mereka aja hahaha jadi curhat gini, sori dit. iya pahaji nasir foto. terakhir kesana lagi banyak color negative dnp centuria ISO 200 @ Rp 22.500 & Era Shantou BW film @ Rp 20.000
