Photographer's Note

The 2nd part of my serial photo "In Trance"..

These people, after arriving from their praying in Sanur beach, they went back to their temple in the village and once they entering the gate of the temple, some people starting to get unconscious and in a state of trance.. they took the keris (traditional knive) and they began piercing their chests with the keris..
In their belief, when people doing this in a state of trance, they won't feel any hurt and not wounded.

This is one of a sacred tradition in Bali.

Have a nice week-end.
