The Easy Life on Bintan Island, by Sean Lowcay

These old crusty deck chairs rest easily under a traditional thatched sun umbrella on a beach in Bintan, Indonesia. This images captures the essence of a sleepy tropical paradise where you can happily while away the afternoon, reading and relaxing without care crossing your mind. I enjoyed this trip very much and have been a frequent visit to Bintan over the last eight years.

Photographer: Sean Lowcay (Singapore) Registered
New Zealand born and raised, Sean Lowcay moved to Singapore in 2006 and has been photographing the wonderful people and places of Asia ever since. His passion for photography was ignited as a child, by the gift of an Instamatic camera from his mother, which he promptly started pointing at everyone and everything – a bad habit which he continues to this day, though the equipment has had an update. Sean pursues his street, portrait and fashion based photography with a dreamy, enigmatic style, creating works of beauty and mystery – which, happily, some have found to be of commercial use. He finds creative inspiration in classic movies and in the faces of the people he photographs.
