The weather is turning ever more drab and gray here in the Netherlands, and I am looking through the photos I took during my trip to Indonesia two years ago with a heavy heart. When I started photography, I kept thinking about the advice my mother once gave me: focus on the details. And it’s true: sweeping panoramas of landscapes can be gorgeous, but they lose their depth on the screen. It’s in the little things that you can capture the spirit of a country. This is what I’ve done in Indonesia and on subsequent travels.
Here are some of the incredible places my feet took me while I was in Indonesia.
