Student Spotlight: Willy Mulyadi

23 November 2016

Bali & Beyond

Raffles photography student Willy Mulyadi is preparing for his first solo exhibition, People of Ubud. Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, Willy is currently based in Sydney, but travelled back to Indonesia to undertake his photographic major work in Bali.


Students in the third year of our photography degree write their own brief for a major project within their chosen specialization. Unsurprisingly, Willy chose to focus on travel, having previously travelled to Mongolia (see the photobook here), Myanmar and New Zealand, photographing along the way. He says that he “enjoys meeting new people from different cultures.”


“People of Ubud is a documentary series depicting another side of Bali. Away from the stereotypical tourist activity, the daily life and religion of the friendly and humble Balinese people are revealed.”


Willy spent three weeks photographing in Ubud. He was there for Galungan, a Balinese celebration during which people from all around Bali gather in one village for prayer, processions, music and dancing.

A photobook has also been created to accompany his exhibition. Selected works from People of Ubud will also be on display at the Raffles College Graduate Exhibition in December. As for Willy, his next destination is Beijing, China in 2017.
