    Beyond Java

    Deluxe Photo Book
    Expect the unexpected

    An exclusive visual selection

    Beyond Java displays a mosaic never seen before! From 1 to 99 years old, to colorful life sceneries and breathtaking landscapes, I have screened more than 40,000 photographs from my expeditions and selected 150 frames in order to introduce you Indonesia in the most exquisite way a photo book could conceive it.

    10,000 km of ethnological exploration

    For the past three years, I explored Java island with my motorcycle as a travel photographer, putting into spotlight the locals with the relentless mission to promote Indonesia on a global scale. This is the only photo book about Indonesia that aims to preserve the country’s cultural heritage by focusing on its people and ethnies.

    Go beyond mere travels

    Beyond Java is a photo book but not only. It is also a well-thought-out concept of a travel diary filled with unique human encounters and inspiring life stories. This rendezvous with humanity encompasses some aspects of society that will make you look at the world with different eyes and ultimately change your perspectives.

    More than a book

    An experience redefined

    With over 200 pages, large photo dimensions (up to 40 cm x 28 cm/16" x 11"!) and a dual-sided, near edge-to-edge printing, Beyond Java will immerse you above usual book experience in order to bring maximum emotion and wonderment.

    Made with premium materials

    Feel at your fingertips the fine materials of the book hardcover and let yourself guide all the way through its inner pages printed with the amazing OJI Mat Art Paper, providing crisp and clear images.

    Printed in limited copies

    Because Beyond Java prides itself on its high level of quality, it also comes in limited edition. Not everyone will have the chance to hold in hand this Indonesia’s precious heritage work of art.

    Dear Marius, I received your book yesterday and it is so impressive, more than I even expected! You are a very special photographer. Special because I know I could point to any of your subjects and you could tell me about the person and the day you met them. No poverty porn from you. Every portrait is filled with respect and

    I am trying to take my time reading and appreciating every page. Savouring every word and image. You deserve all the plaudits and all the great reviews I am sure you will receive Marius. Many congratulations on this wonderful book! 💚💚💚

    "Trenyuh" is a word in Javanese which equally means "moved", "happy" and "touched" to the depths of oneself. The self that we hide from the gaze of others. This is how I feel looking at the frames of your book.
    It's like taking me home. It's as if I found my grandmother, my grandfather, my grandparents ... all the elders of my village that I love so much.
    I know the village of Mojosongo in Boyolali where you took the photo of Mbah Warsinah. I had been there when I was in high school.
    "Mbah" is also how I call my grandmother, and the elders of my village.
    Thank you, thank you very much.

    Hi Marius ... received my copy of the book this morning and have just finished the first section of your journey. The quality of the book is amazing but what strikes one immediately is the deep connection you have clearly made with your subjects ... these are very interactive pictures and we are seeing inside people, not looking at them. Quite remarkable... The eyes are mesmerizing... wow! I am deliberately stopping here for today so I can give each section the attention it deserves. Best David
