The thing to remember while watching travel videos is that they reflect a particular destination through the eyes of the beholder. Every lens, literally and figuratively, captures the sense of a place with a bias. David Bertschinger Karg attempts to capture two perspectives of Indonesia in his videot .
“Next to all the picture perfect moments we tourists experience in this country, there are the local people who make all this happen for us. I started to stroll through cities and tried to capture the daily grind of the locals.”
I think it’s easy for travelers to forget there’s more to a country than it’s tourist destinations and that’s just what Karg reminds us in his video.
