We build bridges and we cross them.

 

Crossing Bridges 15 marked the 15th time this community of photographer friends converge. Every year, our bond of friendship grows stronger. Using photography as our common tool, we build bridges of friendship, and we cross them. This bridge now currently spans across 10 countries. We intend to stretch and cross the bridge even further in the future. To rephrase Eddie Ng’s word: “we come as strangers, we part as friends.” We all share the bond that many have shared from the previous Crossing Bridges events.

 

This year, Indonesia received the honor to host Crossing Bridges 15. It took around 9 months for the Fotografer.net team to prepare the event, starting from location scoutings, meeting people, finding the best possible routes, and so on. One of Fotografer.net's founder, the late Kristupa Saragih, has been the main inspiration of this event. His passion for photography, his love for his friends and tradition of his homeland, North Sumatra, guided us in developing this event. Such was the inspiration that in the end more and more people wanted to contribute to this event.

 

Viewing from the posts in Crossing Bridges group page in Facebook, we have concluded that the event has been a complete success. Friendship, the essence of Crossing Bridges, has been represented in great detail in the event, in a way that has touch our hearts deeply.
