Whatever catches his eyes that are what he will aim and explore. But as a Balinese, Anom Manik gives big attention to the island’s culture, and captures them with his lenses, turning them into magnificent, timeless still images. As shown on some of his photos; such as ‘Ramayana Epic’, ‘Smile’ and ‘Super Woman’.

Ramayana Epic-To further enforce his existence in the world of photography, Anom Manik is not afraid to stray from commercial path and taking part in prestigious competitions, whether it’s local, national or international to prove his skills.
