Trees in Black and White by ManButur Suantara.
Trees in Black and White by ManButur Suantara. The beauty and poetic vision of ManButur in a series of captures across the Indonesian landscapes. What do you feel when you see a trees’ shadow? When you look upon their reflections and silhouettes. There is something intrinsically human about them.
A Trees’ Reflection
Perhaps you can say, it may be that it is the other way around. There is something intrinsically tree like about human beings. Why we see our own reflection in the Earth’s oldest children. For of the oldest living things on this Earth, trees are amongst them. They carry the memories and earths’ blood in their veins.
They hold the survival of the future in their breathing. When you look at it from this perspective, it is only right that we feel akin and in awe. Of their inscrutable mysteries.
There is this basic truth that trees bring life to others. From the time they are a seed, to their stems and flowers, there is no waste. From the beginning to the end of their life, they are givers to the world.Nyoman ‘Butur’ Suantara

A Little about Sawidji Vision,
“The art in photography is not just about taking a picture. Firstly, it is not just about the technical side of photography. It is also about putting spirit and feeling in the image that you create.
And when you do this, your image can carry a different story in it. Here at ManButur and Sawidji, together we are finding a new driving inspiration to give our fine art photography life. ”
