  2. When Oscar Motuloh and Erik Prasetya are in the list, I think should include Kemal Djufri as well… or maybe next time?

  3. Everyone has their opinions on this sort of thing. Kazuyoshi Nomachi, Hiroshi Hamaya, and Nick Ut, would’ve been on my list. All three have done great work that will stand the test of time.

  4. We have Erik Prasetya, Rama Surya and Oscar Motuloh in Indonesia.
    I happened to remember Lu Nan and Lu Guang from China.
    and Shomei Tomatsu from Japan.

  6. issei suda, who’s very influential in Japan especially if you look at other peoples photographs. There’s not much info on the web but his books are always great and his prints are perfect. Some people may like.
