#ignt_undercover Winner Axel Oswith

With our weekly Insta Fav Feature we offer you a chance to actively promote your own account to become a future Insta Fav on the blog.

Every Thursday we announce a certain topic via a hashtag, afterwards you’ll have 4 days to make a photo working with that topic and upload it to your Instagram using the hashtag. Who shot the best image will be featured as our Insta Fav in the following week. This weeks topic is #ignt_patterns and here are a few rules and tips:

– The goal this week is to capture a creative photo of the patterns found outside and inside buildings. Take a closer look at the buildings you pass every day, or take a look towards the ceilings or floors.
– Please only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image tagged until Monday is eligible to be featured right here.
– If you want to submit your photo, use the hashtag #ignt_patterns and upload your photo until Sunday the 15.03 on your Instagram account. Have fun and good luck, we can’t wait to see your submissions.

When and where did you take the picture? Tell us a little about the idea behind it.

The picture was taken at the hallway of my campus on a sunny day. The idea behind it was inspired by Irving Penn as a tribute to his works that I have admired for quite a while.

Where are you from? How does that place influence the way you photograph?

Jakarta – Indonesia. Living in Jakarta all my life has made me realise that a lot of us are not familiar with the arts both locally and internationally, therefore this has probably inspired me to study various artists and help introduce it to the media in my own interpretation of what I think would be interesting for others.

Who and what are the things that inspire you?

I am inspired by simple everyday objects and the works of modern artists such as Andy Warhol, Marina Abramovic, and Wayne Thiebaud.

Your favorite instagrammers?

@amandakusai, @florenttanet, @brockdavis and @jamestolic.

Which Apps do you use to edit your pictures?

Tell us a little about your everyday. (Family, friends, work, etc.)

My daily routines include sleeping late, planning the day’s schedule, and trying to develop a habit for healthy living and eating. During my free time, I engage my self in visual literature and news to keep up with the rest of the world. As for work, I co-run a creative space and studio called the taable with my partner Amanda Kusai, we are currently busily producing a couple of pieces for our exhibition next month that will be one of our first ever debut, we can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
