Communion between People and Nature by Dewan Irawan
I recently found these beautiful photos taken by Dewan Irawan, an Indonesian photographer. I was stroken by their timeless set-up; children and grown-ups are projected in an idyllic atmosphere where nature is part of each of their action. The animals are more than just part of the set-up: they are human companions, support, friends and witness of their lives.
The magic comes from the idealization of banal acts like sleeping, singing, playing, washing, and giving them a magic value, sustained by the superb and indestructible communion between people and nature. In this idyllic set-up it looks like nothing bad could ever happen.
