Two Worlds of Bali

Steeped in tradition yet living in the modern world—the dichotomy of Bali.

Blurry on Purpose (Balinese Muscle)

A couple weeks ago, I found myself in the middle of a body building contest in a shopping mall in Kuta, Bali. Does the word surreal come to mind yet?

So, what does a passionate street photographer do in this kind of situation?

  1. Pack up the camera and pull out the Visa card to do some shopping?
  2. Say, “Forget this!”, and does a 180 to get back out on the street?
  3. Or, puts the viewfinder to the eye and starts clicking?

If your answer was #3, you and I need to go hang out together.

Enjoy this new addition to the Abstractionism section of the Artistic Street photo gallery.

Here are a couple outtakes just so you kinda get the vibe of the scene.

Selamat Pagi (Good Morning)

Street Photography Karma

I believe in karma when it comes to street photography. I believe that if your mind & eye are open to all forms of beauty and your camera is at the ready, then good rewarding photos will come to you.

I met this woman Grating fresh coconut (Nyuh in Balinese) on the way to an early morning portrait session. I had three bags of gear, but still managed to have my trusty rangefinder around my neck.

Pasar Ubud Mornings

A Stage for Shadow Play

A stage for an epic play of shadows–is what the pasar brings you just after the early morning rush. This is when the sun finally makes its way above the tops of Ubud’s buildings. If you chase harsh light, then wait for it. You’ll be rewarded.

Seeing Red in Pasar Ubud – Featured by Don’t Take Pictures

Bali Street Photographer Photos Featured

on Don’t Take Pictures’ Seeing Red Gallery

Late last year/early this year (2018/2019), three photographs from Bali Street Photographer were exhibited by Don’t Take Pictures. I’ve been following Don’t Take Pictures for years. So, being featured in one of their exhibits is a huge honour. Especially since the team over there is held in high esteem and continually curates impeccable photography work in print and digital media.

Why Don’t Take Pictures?

Don’t Take Pictures’ philosophy compliments Bali Street Photographer’s mission. The name itself is provocative and oxymoronic at the same time (given the context). So, what’s the meaning behind Don’t Take Pictures?

The title, Don’t Take Pictures, references the language of modern photography. Over the years, the term “taking pictures” has begun to be replaced with “making photographs.” The change signifies a distinction between the widespread use of cameras in the modern world and the more systematic, thoughtful process of creating photographic art. At Don’t Take Pictures, we strive to celebrate the creativity involved with the making of photographs.  ~Don’t Take Pictures

Here’s Bali Street Photographer’s mission statement (from the About page).

To see rather than look. To create rather than take. To explore rather than visit. To connect rather than separate. ~Bali Street Photographer

The Featured Photos

These are the three photographs that were in the exhibit. All made by Bali Street Photographer.
