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 video Indovista.
“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.
