Looking eastwards beyond Jakarta and Java, this diversified, magnificent part of Indonesia is not much visited, except for the famous Bali and her beautiful beaches and scenery. The book project "EAST OF JAVA - THE PEOPLE
" will show portraits of some of the many different people living on these islands; in Sulawesi, in Nusa Tenggara; Lombok, Sumbawa, Sumba, Flores and Timor as well as images of people and their daily life in Bali.
The book is planned for publishing in South East Asia and China, bilingual in English and Chinese.
Some of the black & white images from the book project have been exhibited in large format at Epsite Imaging Exhibition Center in Shanghai, China.
A number of large size prints from the Indonesia collection are mounted onboard the large Norwegian merchant ship m/v "Star Java", trading worldwide, for permanent exhibit.
