Bayu Wira Handyan
Three Weeks, Melancholia
[FUJIFILM / YOUNG TALENT AWARD 2017 – SHORT LIST ]
My work presents the questions about existence of life and the things related with solitude. The solitude that causes feelings of anxiety, worry, and fear that led to a melancholia. My pictures are a result of myths that exist in my culture and surrealist things that appear from my fantasies.
