Hariandi was born in Suriname and lives in Lelydorp. From somewhere at age three, he started drawing and painting with everything he found in his vicinity and also on everything he could draw or paint. Since 1994 it took serious shape when he started participating in various Group Exhibitions. His first click on a photo camera he had at age three, out of curiosity. In 1994 Hariandi started as an event photographer, mainly covering cultural activities.
Since 2000 his photo’s were published in the newspapers. That is how his work as a journalist started, with photo’s and caption. Then, followed by assignments for various organizations and companies, his photos were also printed in books, magazines, billboards and were later used for websites as well.
After, came a period of Lifestyle photography, because of his string interest in humans. Five years ago, he began with drone photography, enjoying and exploring the new world of looking at nature, his environment and his neighborhood from new horizons and different angles.
Now at a later age, he quietly takes his time for and with nature. In this exhibition SIAF2020, he shows flowers, his neighborhood and a glimpse of his philosophical mind.
