BALI & Myself by Dominic Haydn Rawle for BB Dakota
A beautiful series of images captured by Dominic Haydn Rawle.
The pictures of me are taken for BB DAKOTA, with no makeup and on film. I really adore these landscape photographs because they really capture the beauty and rawness of the Island. Growing up in Bali was really special, such an amazing culture and the landscapes are incredible. It's getting rarer and rarer to find places like this on the island. I remember growing up mainly around rice fields and temples, and so much forest land, when today it's mostly construction sites and traffic. You can still find beautiful true Bali. It's just for the ones who are willing to explore and experience Bali mostly the local way. Not in a Resort that took over about hectares of land on the beach, building a block of concrete that takes away the local restaurants and ruin the surf brakes. I am so gratefull to know Bali like the back of my hand and to have experienced it at its best. Imagine how my parents would have experienced Bali 35 years ago? Damn I wish I could have the same way.
Anyways, thank you to @dominichaydnrawle for giving me the chance to show you guys how beautiful the Island I grew up on is, and capturing me for @BbDakota with the Styling touch of @MaddisonRothery .
I am excited to move to London for a couple of years and experience life as an adult and to pursue my dreams with @IMGmodels but I am most of all so grateful to have my incredible and grounding Bali home and family to come back to \whenever I need to get my head straight. I'm excited to start my new chapter in life.
