Photojournalist John Stanmeyer, who lived in Bali from 2003 to 2008, has an exhibition at the Ganesha Gallery, Four Seasons Resort on Jimbaran, the Wall Street Journal reports. The exhibition, “A View of Balinese Rituals”,  supports his recent book  Island of the Spirits, which was itself a result of his concerns about the loss of Balinese culture in the face of rapid development.

He says “The pressure on Bali is unbelieveable given the development that is going on. The local culture is fast-disappearing and I wanted to look at that.”

The exhibition runs till January 3, 2011.
