Publisher’s Note

Across the world’s greatest archipelago lie lands of outstanding beauty, seas of such clarity that can hardly be believed, raging rivers that weave tortuous routes through deep green forests, vast mountains that seem to fill the horizon. It is a place of unique beauty, and one which deserves to be captured by great photography and brought to life by creative description.

But more than that, nestled in valleys, perched on hilltops, straddling streams and paddling in lakes, are people of such cultural diversity that they too need to be gently and carefully recorded on camera and depicted faithfully in words. There are still voyages of discovery to be done, still hidden heritages to be found, and the remarkable team of David Metcalf and Stephanie Brookes set out to discover them, travelling the roads much less travelled.

It has been my pleasure to have their journeys published in NOW! Jakarta magazine every month, and now even more of a pleasure to collect them into this small but beautiful book, full of the lives and cultures they discovered. Congratulations to both the authors for their outstanding work, to David for his brilliant photographs, and to the readers, o hope every page brings you pleasure, and encourages the world to appreciate the extraordinary culture of Indonesia, and preserve it for all time.
