Bali Essence


Described as one of the most evocative book on Bali yet, Masterclass Photographer David Metcalf, with Balinese talent, Nyoman Pujawan, takes you on a journey of old Bali. Narrated by Clare McAlaney, this book brings emotions to the fore as you explore the road less traveled, while pondering on the possibility that it could be lost forever without attention to its culture and environment.
