FAR salute Oscar Motuloh as our Person of the Month. He is the Soldier of National photo. Where his style is very journalist yet fascinating. A shy photographer however his photos are not as shy as him, we can say as if we are there also as he took those photos. To balance the tense of Oscar motuloh’s photos we showcase our Artwork Bunch full with colours, interiors and dolls.

To reminisce ourselves and celebrate Mother’s Day we have our editor put together an article about Our Beloved Mom. Also to spice it up we have a contributor put together a story about the controversial live of a trans – sexual in Jakarta. How people see it and perceive it.

While we salute how hard it is to be different on issue 5, we also explored the story of someone who had a positive HIV. Here we are not trying to write any judgement or perception. It is simply a story of the person’s journey.

FAR also take a deep look inside Lampung and Surabaya, where its hidden place will take your breath away!

And many more!


This month we have the pleasure to blow the minds of Writers in Indonesia. FAR loves creativity not only in Art also in Literature. Not just in this issue though. Think issue 2, where we talk about the importance of Children in studying how to write with Dik Doang. On this issue we focus in Literature as we have Zara Zetira as our cover. Where she talks about the meaning of being a writer and her excitement in writing stories for soaps or books. And herself as a cool suave writer and the women behind all pop writing culture.

Our ARTWORK BUNCH are filled by these talented people all over Jakarta;
Arya Mularama is known of his absurdity and messy work of art. He tend to use Wacom and Drawing pen to create the illustrations that has urban and surrealist feeling.
Wastu Widyawan is a graphic design who admit that his interest on art was a bit late then it should be. He admire artwork by Godiex, Richard Phillips and Will Cotton that tend to use dark colours and the beauty of women.
Arian Arifin is not only an Artist also a singer of Seringai band. He has the passionate of drawing on his early age, 2 years old. His style is identical into Heavy Metal culture where it includes skull, crow and wolf.
"Youngsters should have full respect and keep on creating", said Ritchie Hansel. How he let the idea flows is by letting the brain by itself and never really thinks about what the art theme is going to be, also let the people think about what the art he made is about.

Like Father Like Son, Kemal Reza Gibran is an artist following his dad footsteps creating a clothing design filled with dark edgy colours as main colours. the style of it gives an urban feeling yet classic.
Who doesn't know Eko Nugroho? A man born in Yogyakarta, known as Daging Tumbuh, and have been creating excellence Installation around the globe.

Lomo lovers! you wouldn't want to miss these MAD photos captured by Putri Daskian and Sapta Hudaya

FAR Magazine will take you to a world of the unimaginable, brought to you by Tarita Kowara, our Make up artist from the 1st edition as our make up artist for Nicholas Saputra.
