Finding Enlightenment Through Gorgeous Landscapes

Experience a momentary pause in life as you view these photographs by Hengki Koentjoro. The Indonesia-based artist has captured a sense of meditative isolation in this series, entitled Mindfulness. Each image features a solitary figure, set against the stark blacks and whites of the surrounding environment. By eliminating color, Koentjoro draws his viewers into the scene and encourages us to stop and reflect, if even for just a fleeting moment.

Previously, Koentjoro took us through the misty landscapes of Indonesia, transforming tree trunks, leaves, and mountaintops into abstract patterns and shapes. This time, he turns his focus to the stunning waterfalls and lakes across the country. Viewers will become instantly entranced by the serene environments and will easily find meditative bliss while contemplating the images.
