About the book
In 2012 PannaFoto Institute commences a photo book series, PORTFOLIO, which aims to publish photo books by Indonesian photographers. The aim of this project is to promote their work both locally and internationally.
The first book in the series is titled PASSING, featuring selected shots taken by EDY PURNOMO.
This book contains about Edy Purnomo’s trip of the year 1998 – 2012 from various regions ranging from the coast of Banda Island up to the “roof of the world” country, Nepal.
Through “Passing”, Edy wants to share what he felt with the reader, of course, with a different perception depending on what is experienced by each of “Passing” book reader, that we all go on a journey, regardless of its form.
