Terra Incognita – Photographs by Darwis Triadi

Bare Beauty as Indonesia's Leading Fashion Photographer Explores the Female Form July 2 – 26, 2007 at the Four Season's Ganesha Gallery.


(6/4/2007)

Although Darwis Triadi is best known as one of Indonesia's top fashion photographers, his latest exhibition "Terra Incognita" at the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay demonstrates that he is also a talented artist.

Originally trained as a commercial pilot, Triadi's career begin in the early 1980s when he burst onto Jakarta's budding fashion scene. A convinced autodidact, his stubborn self assurance and new ideas, unfettered by experience, combined with an indomitable personal energy that quickly saw him rise to the top of fashion photography in the space of a few years.

Unwilling to wallow in the success of being considered a leader in fashion photography, Triadi was goaded by a need to constantly explore new creative avenues. This creative compulsion brought him to portraiture where, once again, he quickly became a name in demand as one of the most talented portraitists of his generation, leading to the founding of his own school of photography in 2002.

Back in the early 1990s, Triadi 'discovered' the black and white photography of early photo artists, such as Edward Steichen. He was mesmerized by the stark beauty of the female portraits which stood out in contrast against the glamour and artifice of fashion work. Inspired, Triadi began shooting images of female nudes with only the basics – the subject, the camera, the photographer and light. The results were powerful but lyrical images honoring female beauty not as ethereal goddesses but human beings.

In "Terra Incognita" Triadi has gone one step further by casting his subjects amidst the natural splendor of Central Java's nature and its ancient Hindu-Buddhist monuments, adding a new twist by using digital infrared camera. The unique aspect of black and white infrared photography is that while most of the image appears normal, all greens - especially foliage, attain a brilliant luminosity, as if glowing from within. In "Terra Incognita" Triadi experiments with this new world by posing his models among ruins and the impressive roots of banyan trees. Extraordinarily, all elements of his photos, the models, the landscapes and the ancient monuments appear together in a perfect ease and harmony. The juxtaposition of real and unreal is thought provoking and meditative. The results also show yet another side of dynamic artist known for taking chances and winning.

"Terra Incognita" an exhibition of photography by Darwis Triadi at the Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay – Ganesha Gallery July 2 – 29, 2007.

Open daily. For more information call the gallery at ++62-(0)361-701010.
