"People I meet on Instagram tell me I’m a born traveller," says Jakarta Instagrammer Muhammad Jocky, who goes by the name Jo (@dj_jocky). Inspired by the Instagrammers he was following, he was drawn to the landscape and travel photography he saw in the app, especially from outdoor photographer Tom Vaillant (@tomvaillant). Jo started traveling to places with nature-rich landscapes in his home country of Indonesia to capture and share these views with the rest of the world. “My favorite places to shoot are mountains, forests and fog in West Java, including Bandung, Bali and Malang,” he explains. Jo also likes to bring his Instagram friends along on his explorations and often holds InstaMeets at these places. “I’m very proud of the things I’ve gained through Instagram and InstaMeets because I have many new friends and greater knowledge about mobile photography,” he says.
Jo is particularly fascinated with capturing fog, which emerges quite often in the mountains and forests of this region. He started the #foggyfrenzy hashtag series as a way to collate all his photos of fog as well as those of other Instagrammers.
