Life is all about timing. And location, location, location. Ivan Tanjung nailed both by living in Bali during its freesurf boom in the early 2000s. His brother Rizal bought him a camera and Taylor Steele hired him, loved his work, and sent him down a new path in life. Most recently you saw his work in The Factory edits, which definitely accomplished what he wants to convey in his cinematography: “To show that Indonesia has some of the best surf in the world.”
