Bali Paradise — Day Five

Day Five

With the sun rising on a clear blue sky it was a great relief to see Diah show up on our doorstep at the Royal Pitu Maha. It was our last day in Bali – perhaps forever with those red flags on Luba and I at immigration, and I couldn't remember ever staying anywhere quite so fantastic. The people are friendly and open. I had talked a lot about my work as a photographer and the locals had told me that it was only in the last decade that nudity had started to be condemned.

I had gone to bed the night before wondering if Diah had got cold feet, or if her friends had talked her out of the shoot, but there she was with her big smile and the princess crown she had been wearing at the Muslim ceremony the day before. It turned out to be an unforgettable session. To see Diah dancing isn't something you want to miss. Go to - http://www.hegre-art.com/movies/DiahRythmofBali.html

This is rare footage and I don't believe will you find anywhere else in the world a young Balinese dancer performing naked with a local drummer keeping the rhythm beating on a wooden table.

If Putu was relaxed posing, Diah was even more enthusiastic and really got into the role as the nude diva of Bali. She strutted around naked and I could sense her feeling of liberty, she liked being naked in front of the camera but she was also rebelling against the new puritanism forced upon the people.

So, a big thank you to Diah and Putu for being such great representatives of the new generation of young people growing up on Bali. Hopefully they can bring back some of the naturalness and simplicity that has resigned on Bali for centuries.

Bali
Really excellent high-end photos of Bali villa and beautiful models. Great choice of location. I once saw Bin Laden tee shirts for sale in the outdoor markets, though. Thanks for such an exotic effort, you are really the best photographer of the genre out there today.

I would like to fall on my knees before her and worship her!!!

She is so sweet and innocent, I would do anything for this girl!

there are amny more exotic islands & beaches in Indonesia, not only Bali.
Please dont just cover thebeaches & scenery of Bali Island. In Indonesia, there are many many more beautiful & exotic islands with amazing panoramas like Toba Lake in North Sumatra, Bunaken Beach in Manado, Ennu Beach in Palu, Togian Beach in Sulawesi Tengah, and many more around Indonesia.
Great to see & watch Indonesian models in your photos-art.

To william,
How do you know if they are Hindu? Everybody can use Putu as name. They are fake balinese, immoral girls. I am dissapointed with your corection. Diah is Moslem, she is from Banyuwangi also the girl known as Putu on the photo exactly nit a balinese girl. She is Javanese. They are all muslem. Everybody know that in Bali.

It's not a muslim hat at all>Diah's dancing is also bali dancing,not else, please don't write things that u don't know exactly as this can cause misperception.thank you
All the beauty of the world
I was in Bali in summer of 2005. These wonderful pictures with this trpical garden remember me a lot of souvenirs from this delicious country. And Luba est tellement jolie que sa silhouette épouse ce paysage de rêve et se fond en lui, comme Eve au premier temps de l'Eden...Bali, spirit of Eden (it's also a great LP of Talk Talk, écoutez le) Thanks.
