Today I want to present a series by Indonesian Photographer Muhammad Hidayat. If you follow my photos for a while, you have probably noticed that I am a big fan of gritty & blurry flash photos.
I understand that this style is not for everyone and that you probably won’t find the same satisfaction like I do while flicking through these images. But if you are unfamiliar with this photographic style, I urge you to give it a try.
Immerse yourself in this dreamy world and let your fantasy flow.
This is a collection of some of the photos taken in 2016, in which I tried to record and freeze some photographs in public areas in several places with a street photography style and a blurring and motion approach.
The photographs, which very simply emphasize the style to take pictures, give a touch of imagination and depth of flavor that emerges from a process of reasoning or thinking that departed from observation and how to look at a masterpiece.
In my understanding, photography is an art. If we are talking about the art, it is very deep understanding. I infer that photography is an art of expression through which we can express the intent, ideas, feelings to produce an image.
Play with your imagination
Imagination means the power of thought to imagine or create images (paintings, picture, etc.). It means we can take the premise that the imagination is one of the powers of mind that enables us to imagine or describe something. Well here is something I implemented into a photograph.
The basis of this kind of thinking makes me very interested to see that photography has an essence that is much broader and deeper than just focused and fixated on the technical in general, This leads me to produce and enjoy and love the style photographed with blurring and motion.
Muhammad Hidayat (b. 1982) lives in Aceh.Indonesia where he works as a finance section staff for a government sector, He began to pursue photography seriously in 2015 and is currently focused on fine art and expressionism photography. His photographs are very personal Lifting the story from his life experience. For him, photography is not just pressing the shutter button, but a means for pouring out one’s feelings and imagination as well.
