A photographer named Herman Damar, who is based in Jakarta, has released an intimate photo series of village life in Indonesia that will give you a whole new appreciation of the country and its people. Every photo is a colorful insight into the day-to-day happenings of villagers who spend their time relishing in the simple things in life.

Many of the pictures are of adorable kids playing in creeks and rivers, enjoying sports or just being all-around silly. All of Damar's images are an honest cross section of villagers working, exercising and basking in their eye-opening natural surroundings. We can't think of a better way to show the world these very happy and inspiring people.
