This illustrated book focuses on the little things from everyday life on Bali, the island of the gods. [expand title="more"]Quentin de Briey simply lets himself be guided and carried away by chance, by the hum of motorbikes, the smiles of strangers, the stalls selling durian fruit and the vibrations in the air. He encounters many carefree and proud as well as amused residents. Occasionally they even have their fighting cocks with them. As he travels along the paths charged with volcanic energy, the lush vegetation and steep rice terraces vie for the photographer's attention. De Briey finds his place on the edge of a fairytale vision and a utopian tourist paradise. Most of the photographs in this book were taken in Bali, but some are from both Lombok and the well-known Gili Islands.[/expand]

These photographs are a show-and-tell social commentary on life in a place known more for its wealthy visitors than its inhabitants.[/expand]
