His debut on Ben Trovato in April with Serenade : Nefertiti was highly popular, and now the Jakarta based photographer is back again with another wonderful conceptual story. Nocturne: Shiryo features model Dara Warganegara, a fresh face from B-Mgt, who was styled by Andhika Dharmapermana, and had make up and hair done by Husein Yunior.
Advan says this about the story: “- According to Japanese folklore, Shiryo means dead spirit. It also means “faint” or “dim”. On this story, I orchestrated the darkness ambience into the photo shoot, with silent mood trough spotted light on model only, native Japanese make up and hair done by Husein Yunior, and black on black layering on the garments with tulle, satin and chiffon material styled by Andhika Dharmapermana. Each piece is constructed into new look of garments. In relation with Piano Black, this series belongs in Nocturne. Nocturne itself is music that is inspired by the night.”
In April, Advan told us he grew up in a house of music, creativity, and has played piano, sung, written, and painted for as long as he can remember. Read more here.
