Life, Death & Color in Bali
Project info

Even as the tropical island of Bali (Indonesia) rushes upstream, embracing tourism and technology at a rapid-fire pace, feeling the tug towards modernity and material success, still the people remain tied to their Hindu spiritual heritage through ritual, ceremony and prayer. As an expat living in Ubud, I've witnessed the push and pull that some say threatens the very fabric and future of Balinese culture. By seeking out traditional and ceremonial life in Ubud and around the island, I try to capture the precious elements and experiences of an island, almost perpetually, in transition.
