35mm: Sean Dwyer: Bali

Heading overseas to the same place twice in one year wasn’t something that I planned on when I started my final year of Uni but it just kind of happened, and who am I to stop that.

These are unedited photos from four different 35mm film cameras. I shoot a lot of digital but always have a few film cameras hanging around for some happy snaps.

The first trip was a three week spring break getaway with a few mates. It was the first time any of us had been to Indo so we had a lot of ground to cover. We made our way across most of Bali and then headed over to Gili Islands and Lombok. A few notable things happened along the way like when the Pearl Jam drummer gave us beers because he liked the song we’d just attempted to play in a little bar (yeah, Pearl Jam!) or when we were late to our Volcano climb at 2am because our driver was warning people in the village about the massive snake he’d just seen (the kind of massive snake that could eat someone’s baby. No joke). My favourite place from this trip was Lombok. Palm trees, waves and cheap beers.

My second trip was more focused on photography. It ended up working out perfectly because my friend Cam (owner of Monsta Surf) just happened to be heading over at the same time to shoot their new summer range. I spent two weeks goofing around in Canggu and a few days over on Nusa Lembongan Island. Good crew, good waves and good vibes. I even got to stay an extra day because of the ash cloud, cheers Volcano! I owe ya one.
