Beauty shots by Mark Thomas

Aus­tralian-based pho­tog­ra­pher Mark Thomas is a reg­u­lar trav­eler to In­done­sia, es­pe­cially to the Is­land of the Gods. His pho­to­graphic jour­ney started with film cam­eras and a home dark­room in his youth. He sub­se­quently en­joyed a cor­po­rate ca­reer that took him to travel the world ex­ten­sively but at the same time lim­ited his pho­to­graphic pur­suits.

Af­ter re­tir­ing in 2014, Mark has been com­bin­ing his love for pho­tog­ra­phy and travel. His main in­ter­est is pho­tograph­ing peo­ple from dif­fer­ent cul­tures around the world, us­ing both for­mal por­trai­ture and street pho­tog­ra­phy styles. In this photo col­lec­tion, Mark fo­cuses on the beauty of Balinese women and em­braces tra­di­tional cloth­ing and makeup as well as car­ni­val cos­tumes at this year’s Bali Arts Fes­ti­val open­ing pa­rade – all of the im­ages were taken with Has­sel­blad HV plus Zeiss 24-70 mm F2.8.

He hopes that th­ese im­ages por­tray both the el­e­gance and the vi­brancy of Balinese cul­ture.
