Herman Damar, a self-taught photographer in Indonesia, has captured beautiful moments from the everyday lives of villagers living outside of Jakarta, the nation’s capital. His photographs, 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 work.
Damar’s photography, which he shoots with a Canon 550D, is beautiful for its 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.
