Travel, they say, opens your eyes to the wonders of the world and the diversity that it contains. But, like many other ardent travelers, I’ve also found that travel gives you a fresh perspective of home. I consider it my mission of sorts to introduce the marvels of Indonesia to the people I meet in my journeys. And I wholeheartedly believe that I am able to do so since whenever I discover a new place to visit, I also find a new angle to look back at my home. This fundamental idea also drives DAMAN’s mission to highlight actors, celebrities and public figures. We go far and wide to speak to some of the most celebrated people in show biz and at the same time we take what we’ve learned from Hollywood and beyond to look back at how far our own artists have moved forward. As a local magazine with a global reach, we feel that it’s only right that we bring attention to Indonesian talent. On a more personal level, I find it heartening to see how we’re slowly but surely moving forward. And, more importantly, how we sometimes make huge leaps forward.
