About Arka Project

Arka Project is an independent collective of photographers focusing on in-depth and long term visual documentary project. It is cofounded by three emerging Indonesian photographers: Muhammad Fadli, Putu Sayoga, and Yoppy Pieter.

We have built this collective from scratch not by solely relying on a belief “strength in numbers”. Instead we do more believe in our shared vision, passion, and the urge to tell stories—which constructed the very core of Arka Project.

We also simply believed there are a lot of stories out there beyond the news and daily coverage. Some stories are just need to be told from different perspectives. There are always many sides to every story.

Our photographers have their works published in Der Spiegel, M Le magazine du Monde, PROOF National Geographic, National Geographic Traveler Indonesia, Forbes Asia, Forbes Indonesia, Afar, Monocle, Marie Claire Spain, Marie Claire Indonesia, DestinAsian, DestinAsian Indonesia, Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia, Outlook Traveller India, Silverkris, Tempo and etc.
