This series is taken from my time with people from the Baduy, Mentawai and Sasak tribes on the islands of Java, Siberut and Lombok in Indonesia. I lived with them for a week each and managed to gain a small insight into their ways of life. Even though we couldn’t converse through English, my aim was to relate, observe and befriend these lovely people who isolate themselves within the surrounding (natural) environment, and live peacefully away from the noise and distraction of today’s first world technological reliance.


You can read my story of the ‘Elements’ project here. You can also watch a behind-the-scenes video here as well as check out my Instagram page @mattjacobphotography for more footage and photos.
