Tropics & Traditions
Tales of Indonesia
- The unfiltered reality of one of the largest countries in the world
- Unique insights into inaccessible regions of the archipelago and exciting stories of encounters with remote indigenous people
- With photographs from adventurous perspectives – underwater and with the drone from the bird's eye view
Indonesia is one of the largest countries on Earth. The beauty and untouched nature of this unique island archipelago can now be marvelled at by tropical enthusiasts in the elaborate photo book Tropics & Traditions – Tales of Indonesia by Manolo Ty.
The photographic artist takes us on a journey to the most remote indigenous peoples, who live far from the civilisation we know, leading a life rooted in tradition and harmony with nature. In impressive shots, some taken from unusual perspectives like from the air with drones or underwater, we see unexplored jungles, solitary islands, mighty volcanoes, and dreamlike coral reefs.
Ty also bridges the gap to the bustling metropolises of the country, which could hardly contrast more vividly with the breathtaking beauty of nature. He shows us Bali and Jakarta, which gleam with imposing buildings that snugly intermingle with traditional structures and the temples of Buddhism and Hinduism.
In the impressive coffee table book Tropics & Traditions, Manolo Ty always tells fascinating stories. About astonishing encounters with archaic peoples, majestic natural landscapes, solitary places, and imposing cities.
For all Southeast Asia enthusiasts who crave a high-calibre photo book that provides a visually stunning deep insight into this partially untouched island nation, Tropics & Traditions is a true wellspring of inspiration.
