Photographer's Note

The Eternal Youth Fountain where local people bath to earn eternal life. The contrast between shadow and harsh light was very difficult to manage and I did my best to keep as much detail as possible.

Here are some infos that I've found about the site :

Tampaksiring was long time ago a center for the Hindu religion on Bali, and has within it's borders two of the most sacred temples and relics on the island

Sukarno, who was half Balinese, used to stay in the built palace during his frequent visits to the island. Some say that Sukarno built the palace close to the Balinese Fountain of Eternal Youth to indefinitely prolong his "President-for-Life" status.

According to rumors Sukarno himself used a telescope to study the naked women who took a bath in the holy water. When he found somebody he liked he sent for them, and is supposedly father to several children on the island.
