What he captured on his camera is on display in Bratislava's Slovak National Museum-Natural History Museum, at Vajanského nábrežie 2. The images are part of the Mysterious Indonesia: Tom-toms of Time exhibition prepared by the Livingstone Travel Agency, which Švaříček has owned since 1995.
The photographs talk about the striking beauty of one of the most preserved rainforests, and the fascinating life of its inhabitants. They show them at moments of sadness and happiness, and also the people's ever-present curiosity. The pictures depict the natives performing traditional rituals.
To experience the spirit of Indonesia come to the Indonesian Evening on September 20 at the SNM's premises and watch Indonesian dance and music live.
