Bali: “Island of the Spirits” multimedia photo essay


Bali, Island of the Spirits © John Stanmeyer / VII Photo

John Stanmeyer lived with his family among the spirits and people in Bali for five years. In looking at his Bali photographs you know that he was touched by the spirits and that he touched them as well. This is a story about the love of an island, it’s people and the spirits that reside in all things there. It is also a warning about what change can mean to a culture. Most of all, it is John’s gift to the people of Bali and to us. View the slideshow here in Lens Culture. Enjoy!
