Editor’s Showcase: Tomi Saputra

Title: Carpe Noctum
By: Tomi Saputra
Location: Indonesia

Carpe Noctum is how I responded and tried to express my astonishment towards the reality of life, especially at night. Night time was created to give human beings the chance to rest all their exhaustion from daytime activities.
But what did I find? People continue to roam even though the night was getting late and it didn’t leave the impression of silence anymore. Was it an escape from daytime fear or a search of false serenity by the lonely souls?
