I spend my day doing something useful, and night in my thinking cap.

I love books, I collected them, I like how they look

on the shelf, on the floor, on my table.

I like to draw, it is the way my hand wanders

picking cues from pebbles in my mind.

I take long walks, alone. I think best between steps... my steps. Along the way I snap photos and short takes of videos.

I listen to music at times to leave time markers, aural memory.

I write letters and emails that I never send.

I published poems for one I adore, unbeknown.

I love beauty, I adore smart, I worship kindness.

I multi-tasks, I think multi-tracks.

I procrastinate eating, sleeping.

I hate making or receiving phone calls, I love Visual voice mail.

 

Above all...

I'll raise my sons to be better than me.

 

Mo

 

p.s.

I processed most of my photos, I can't help it...

I am more of a painter than a real photographer.

I remember when I first met Mo. Instantly he became one of my most treasured friends on flickr. I was always delighted with his stunning creative artwork, and he always teased me with his delicious meals. Even though we live miles apart, the friendship still remains. We have gone our different ways with photography, but I always believe that change is a good thing. I look forward to seeing you more in the coming year. I wish you wonderful serendipitous moments, my friend. ♥

Both a great designer and artist, Mo makes some of the best captures of the urban environment I have seen, rather annoyingly there's never a bad one. He's also made me my very own robot and its on the wall in my study. Thanks Mo.

Mo is an exceptional talented photographer who has a special eye in capturing the what we typically see as ordinary scenes and fail to realize the intriguing images they can turn out to be. His rich variety of work is a constant source of inspiration to us here. His street shots are striking and eye catching, something many of us fail to present. A visit to his photostream won't be a disappointment, I can vouch for that. Keep up the great work, Mo! And thanks for being a dear friend

I would call Moriza's work typical 'Indonesian-Amercian school': modern, strong in coulouring and contrasts and he has a very sharp eye for composition and moment. Especially his colouring bares his signature. Alway's look forward to new work. Mo: jalan terus!

Mo Riza besides being an enormous illustrative talent captures moments and mankind in life, that through colour and composition inspire on a nearly daily basis worldwide watchers - he creates appetizers for their personal menu of new views on the globe

Mo rocks!! :D It's very hard for me to choose one of his pictures as a favorite, because all pics are awesome! Cheers Mo!

December 21, 2006

Mo is such a unique artist needless to say. The series of robots were really interesting and so are his paintings. Recognizable and lovely. His photos are also super. The sense of beauty of the angles and the colors are something I don't usually have.

i wanna be a photographer just like Mo when i grow up!
