Author Biography - William Warren
William Warren, American by birth, has lived in Thailand since 1960 and has travelled extensively throughout Asia over the years. He is the author of more than 50 books on architecture, tropical gardens, and history. Jill Gocher has worked in Asia for many years, spending a lot of that time in Indonesia. On her travels around the archipelago, she has sought the unusual, the quirky and the heart-warming, not to mention the beautiful. With such a palette of gorgeous faces, vistas and cultures to choose from, she finds that photographing this beguiling country could take a lifetime. Her photographs have been published in books and magazines in many countries around the world.
