I’ve never looked back from that moment.” Minat Suwandi Chandra, fotografer autodidak sekaligus konsultan software developer, mulai berkembang saat bekerja di AS tahun 2007. Walau kini Suwandi bermukim di Medan, kecintaannya terhadap alam, objek hidup dan bangunan arsitektur terus membuatnya melancong ke berbagai belahan dunia. www.suwandichandra.com Lahir di Bukittinggi, Fadli telah tinggal di Jakarta selama empat tahun terakhir ini. Dia juga salah seorang pendiri Arka Project, sebuah perkumpulan fotografer Indonesia independen.
