Kenvin Pinardy is a professional Indonesian photographer living in the capital of Jakarta. He primarily makes his living doing weddings and fashion shoots for domestic and foreign magazines, though his interests as a photographer range well beyond that.
His professional work centers on wedding and pre-wedding photography, businesses that are “aggressively growing in Indonesia,” Pinardy says. But his hobby is his more photojournalistic work. “Whether it is for a magazine or for my personal collection, I can spend my whole day doing it with full enjoyment and without any complaint.”
Examples of his personal work include Little Girl #2, shot at morning prayers during the Moslem holiday, Eid ul-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan. During the holiday, he says, “people are gathering for morning prayer, after which they gather their whole families and relatives together and forgive each other” for any transgressions of the past year.
