FACES of BALI I photobook 

seen by DAVID ULRICH


portrait‘s, culture, landscape, life & religion


Fleeing the grey of winter in Berlin, David Ulrich landed on the beautiful island of Bali. What was originally meant to be a beach holiday, soon turned into an expedition to those, who don´t call this place a holiday paradise, but home – the natives. They showed him their daily routines, traditional festivities and rituals, invited him into their homes and took him to mysterious places.


With an open heart and sensitive eyes the freelance photographer portrayed his hosts, their culture and the breathtaking landscapes they live in. Seen with his eyes, the so called island of gods unfolds a unique atmosphere, which varies between the profanity in times of the „global village“ and fascinating timeless spirituality. The resulting book of photographs captivates the viewer, while taking him along and allowing him to take part.

„I came here, to paradise, to explore the connection between humans and gods. In this Place the locals’ faith and mystical ceremonies melt into a symbiosis of religion and culture. For a moment I tried to capture the magnificent beauty of this island, its numerous faces and gorgeous landscapes.“ DAVID ULRICH
