Everyday Life In Indonesian Villages Captured by Herman Damar

Herman Damar, an amateur photographer from Indonesia, has captured beautiful moments from the everyday lives of villagers living outside of Jakarta, the nation’s capital. His beautiful photos, especially of happy children at play, paint a picture of the idyllic wonder and natural beauty of Indonesian village life. This advertisement director-turned-hobbyist photographer agreed to answer some of Bored Panda’s questions about his travel photography.

Damar’s photo ideas, which he shoots with a Canon 550D, are beautiful for their intimate and colorful portrayal of village life, but arguably the most heartwarming photos are of village children at play. Their rafts, water guns, and spears show that they have no lack of imagination or of things to do.

To find out more about his work, check out the interview he gave to Bored Panda below!

Indonesian people are very diverse and humble, and they are very happy when I take a shoot,” Damar told Bored Panda

The best thing is, I can be in direct contact with them, their happiness and their lives, and I am very happy to capture in my camera.”

These images were taken in villages “on the outskirts of Jakarta, unspoiled [by] technological advances and full of beautiful nature

Indonesia is very rich in culture and have thousands of beautiful islands, Indonesian people are very friendly..”

Damar said that the best way to capture photos like his was to spend more time among the people “to better understand their culture and their character, and the best time is in the morning between the 7-9 am.”

Most of Damar’s photos “are captured spontaneously, but sometimes I help to direct [their] poses

We’d like to thank Herman Damar for giving Bored Panda an interview and letting us use his photos. We wish him the best of luck!
