Mizuma Gallery presents Mizuma Conversations, a series of interviews with featured artists. Artist in feature here is Iswanto Soerjanto.
Born in 1967 in Jakarta, Indonesia, Iswanto Soerjanto graduated from the Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Barbara, California, USA, with a major in Illustration and Advertising Photography in 1988, and worked as an advertising photographer for many years before he decided to pursue his art practice. His interest in the history of photography and techniques lead him to experiment with the medium, stepping outside the traditional boundary of the modern digital camera.
