    Newer Older

    Best in large - Image copyright

    I met a man in Central Java who was a passionated Wayang Kulit player, he gave shows as work and as a hobby, he invited me in his house which was transformed in a theater, he even gave a private show. Never seen somebody so passionated.
    Wayang kulit (leather puppet) is an indonesian traditional entertaimant, it works with light and shadows.
