In this idyllic photography series, Herman Damar captures the everyday life of people living in rural Indonesian villages. The self-taught photographer is from Indonesia himself, which likely enhances his ability to shoot these light-hearted pictures.

Located in villages outside of Jakarta, the subjects can be seen collecting water, harvesting crops, herding cattle, washing clothes and even playing soccer. The delightful images often include animals and children interacting with each other and elderly community members. Herman Damar manages to capture light in an especially stunning way, catching it streaming through trees or setting over a calmed body of water. The vibrant greenery, happy children and simple lifestyle displayed in these photographs come together in a heart-warming series.
