Tumbang Habangoi, Kalimantan
I recently returned from spending three-and-a-half months in Southern and North Central Kalimantan documenting both the lifestyle and culture of illegal gold and zircon miners, and slash and burn farming in the jungle.
Charlie Hatch-Barnwell was born and raised in London. He graduated from Central Saint Martins with a BA in Graphic Design and this gives him an unusual graphical element to the composition of his images. He’s intrigued by the normalities of everyday life and tries to capture human interaction at its most basic level whilst highlighting the beauty and
importance of these subtle actions. Some of his recent projects include: ‘The life of a heroin addict living in south London’, ‘The circumcision of a young boy’, and ‘An arranged marriage’. In all of these photo essays, he tries to capture social interaction between people and the sense of importance individuals hold within their own sub-culture.
