Bali’s Understated Beauty

Bali’s Understated Beauty

arrive in Bali
after an arduous 24-hour flight and I stand there, camera in hand,
donning a more-vibrant-than-usual printed shirt. For 10 days I’m
another restless tourist, pointing and shooting whatever and
whoever comes to my attention.

I hike to the top of the Mount Batur in pursuit of a panoramic
snap and practise yoga knee-deep in flora. On Bingin Beach, I
witness the wildest and most colourful sunset I have ever seen,
then I take part in Hindu celebrations with local worshippers. I
walk through the Tegalalang rice fields and stroll for endless
hours in a local market in Ubud.

Bali is an hugely popular destination that is almost overshared
on Instagram. It’s hard to imagine a corner that has yet to be
discovered or documented. Yet, somehow, to me it managed to feel
fresh, new and unseen – I wanted this series to capture that
