Ghosts hover everywhere in Bali. At least that is what the inhabitants of this Indonesian island believe, who see their lives as connected with an ‘other world.’ Balinese spiritual culture, a mixture of Hinduism, animism, and Islam, was one of the last in the world to have developed in all isolation. Because of that, centuries-old ceremonies and rituals survive down to this day. International award-winning photographer, John Stanmeyer, spent five years creating this reportage whilst using a camera known as a Holga. His photographs appear to have been made decades ago, stressing the historicity of the spiritual culture on Bali in deeply-layered ways never seen on Balinese culture.
