    Artist Statement

    "This image captures many of the themes of what Bali is about in the 21st Century - the natural beauty of the place and the attempts to keep in that way despite the massive influx of tourism which the island to a large degree depends on. Such eco-resorts attempt to keep the balance between the industry and retaining the natural beauty people come for. Instead of clearing the land and building a huge concrete hotel they have tried to blend the accommodation into the environment and even the rice paddies, making it a part of the scenery and culture of the place."
