During 1989, I embarked on a six month journey through Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia to expose myself to unfamiliar ways of life, and to rekindle a personal passion for street photography. I departed with a single backpack, one-fourth of the packed weight consisting of my SLR and lenses. I returned home 18 pounds under weight but filled with incredible memories and a collection of images documenting what friends would later describe as my personal National Geographic adventure.
Indonesia proved the most exotic leg of the trip, with less developed tourism than the other countries, and dramatic geography. Some images follow below.
