Yoppy Pieter

His interest in visual communication planted early by his father in his elementary years were the main reason he decided to pick up a camera during his employement at a publishing company. He acquired his first photography training at PannaFoto Institute, and he developed further by participating in Permata Photojournalist Grant 2011, Angkor Photoworkshop 2012, and Erasmus Fellowship to Amsterdam at NOOR Image mentored by Kadir Van Lohuizen in 2015. He currently published a photobook titled Saujana Sumpu that tells a forsaken Minangkabau vilage located in West Sumatera where their people have migrated and became a part of Indonesia’s urban population.
