Anton Ismael is one of Indonesia’s influential and creative artists. He was still attending a high school in Yogyakarta when he first discovered his interest in photography. Continuing his passion for photography, he moved to Australia and studied at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
Anton returned to Indonesia in 2001 and joined The Loop, a commercial and advertising production company. It gave him the necessary stint and experience in visual communication before he founded his own company, Third Eye Studio, in 2005.
In 2012, ‘Third Eye Studio’ changed its name to ‘Third Eye Space’ – a creative platform offering broader photography services, cementing Anton's vision in building the photography industry of Indonesia. It is Anton's mission to nurture young talents by offering free photography course through an incubator support program, 'KELAS PAGI'.
