A Short Interview With
What is life to you? What it should be?
“I’m just an ordinary person who lives in Bali. I love my home and I would love life to be like it was 40 years ago. I love having visitors to Bali, but I’d love it to keep it’s culture and history alive as well, now the big issue is some investor will reclamation our ocean around 838 hectare make a new land :( I’m so sad about this news, bali don’t need more hotels, bali need real culture, people know bali because of culture not hotels, so #TOLAKREKLAMASI #ReclamationRejected . I love photography, music, design and everything about art and I think this is an important part of life. I come from a family of artists, including painters, carvers and music composers. Now I’m trying to be a great visual storyteller.”
There are a lot of professions out there – why be a photographer?
“Good question, I used to work as a graphic designer in news department, also in tourism marketing, It was so boring sitting in a room for 8 hours per day, 6 days a week, like a really crazy jail.”
