Surreal Photographer’s Emotionally-Charged 366 Day Project


Like his fellow teen photo enthusiasts, Indonesia-based photographer Mikael Aldo has embarked on a 366 Project, requiring him to share a photo everyday for a year. The young photographer, though admittedly new to the artistic realm of photography, manages to visualize his creative imagination. Aldo's emotionally-charged images are as much a learning process as an expressive outlet, giving audiences a glimpse of his ability to evoke emotions.

The young photographer captures his models both indoors and outdoors, drawing a variety of raw emotions, surreal expressions, and whimsically playful dispositions within his expanding portfolio. His portraits offer stunning documents of human sentiments–ranging from the despondent to the passionate. Despite being a newcomer, Aldo has quickly learned photo techniques incorporated by some of the best to heighten these feelings and this is all while balancing his other life as a student.
