Using simple black and white photography, Hengki Lee has found a way to tell a story with his silhouettes. The Indonesian self-taught photographer captures perfectly the outline of the people and animals in his shots without giving them an identity, almost to insist that you relate them to your own life or create a story for them. Using the moon to light many of his shots, the silhouettes are so crisp that they almost look like construction paper cut-outs glued to the photographs.

In an interview about his work with AstrumPeople, Lee said:

My images are simply about curiosity, dream, poetry and emotion. “The beauty of being different” is the message I am trying to get across by portraying works which do not belong to the mainstream.

What’s even more impressive than his photos is the fact that photography is just a hobby for Hengki Lee who works in trading for a living with his Bachelor’s degree in Business and Economics. We’re happy to see him using his free time to follow and share his passion with the world. See more of his fascinating photos on his website, Fotoblur and 500px.
