Walking the volcanic ash

 

 

 

 

 

“To the plateau they come and go – mountain climbers, pilgrims, discoverers, volcanologists, tourists, storytellers.

Once in a while, daybreak disrupts the facade of eternity.” words of Goenawan Muhamad

 

In the early hours, the local Tengger people traverse the volcanic ash of Mount Bromo caldera to set up snack shops as means of their meagre livelihood.

 

I walked the caldera, creating images of them walking the volcanic ash.
