Photographer's Note

This is the second posting of the Indonesia mini series. Displayed here is a girl working at the grocery in one of the main streets of Amlapura , the capital of the Karangasem district of East Bali. She looks very concentrated, working in her small niche on a low wooden stool between crates and baskets filled with fresh fruit and vegetables.

The next postings will also portray people at work – for me an essential way to make a connection between them and a variety of meaningful cultural elements. And it has the added benefit that the pointing of a big lens at people feels less awkward this way, for you’re shooting the work activity not an isolated person – a subtle but important difference.

The postings of this mini series are all scanned from photos with my Epson 2450 photo scanner, at 800 dpi for decent PP-headroom. The quality isn’t flawless due my continuous battle with the malfunctioning focussing system of the Sigma and the grainy aspect of the photos. But I think they’re still agreeable & I hope you enjoy them.
