Blissed out Bali! On Newstands

In December we made a second trip to Mambal, near Ubud, to photograph a new treatment center for Destinasian, a luxury travel magazine based on this side of the world.
We lit the model Indah (left) with a strobe in a bathtub to her left, and photographed her from a neighboring treatment hut.

The river-side retreat, called Fivelements, provides the healing arts Bali has become known for, and adds an exceptional raw-vegan restaurant, villas with groovy lights, and family-style attention to a long list of spiritual and physical interventions, performed by these guys: Pak Dewa re-aligned my Chakras one afternoon, and Wayan cured a headache with a brief massage, and everyone there made us feel right at home.
