This photo was taken by Kassian Céphas.

 

Photographer Kassian Céphas poses here in person on the steps of the ruins of the Shiva temple, the most significant of the three big temples near Prambanan. The Lara Jonggrang complex near Prambanan is a large Shivaite monument dating from the ninth century AD consisting of three large and several smaller temples. Kassian Céphas and his son Sem were employed as photographers in service to the court of the sultans of Yogyakarta. Kassian (1845-1912), a Javanese native, was the first professional Indonesian photographer.
