The Dada Record: Ivanho Harlim

Hi, I’m Ivanho Harlim. I’m an Indonesian-born, Singapore based photographer. Through my fashion work, I explore notions of solitude, youth and self, and try to challenge conventional perceptions of glamour and beauty. A long-time collaborator to Woods & Woods, I’ve had a string of exhibitions alongside it. I wish to explore more architectural and spatial subjects as an extension to fashion.

Love Is A Deserter by The Kills
I’m a sucker for bands with taunting female vocals or female artists of this same trait. This song represents the rest of the tracks in the No Wow album, one of my favourite albums of all times.

Judith by A Perfect Circle
My quiescent modern metal song. The style of the video informs my own way about taking still pictures. The flare and grain in my pictures are stolen from it.

Devil’s Plaything by Melissa Auf Der Maur & Karen Elson
I stumbled upon a video of the two girls playing this song unplugged-style on showstudio.com. Both the song and the way the video is shot inform my style.

Black History Month by Death From Above 1979
The lyrics feel poetic and romantic, and there’s something about its combination with the grubbiness of the distorted bass which is very appealing.
