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.
Don't listen to me, listen to them
Your book reached my home today. Have been looking at photos and reading your texts for hours. Everything have really touched my heart....
I'm sure you will have a bright future ahead of you, working with the people, and in the country, you love so much.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to buy this amazing book!Norway
"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.France
Hello Marius. Just a note to let you know that the book arrived yesterday. It is by far, the most elegant and wonderful thing I have ever had. The pictures captured on these pages that show true life feelings and emotions, amazing. Thank you for composing it. I thank God for your talent and gift. Take care my friend. And again, thanks.USA
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 DavidUnited Kingdom
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 yes...love.
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! 💚💚💚United Kingdom
