MEN MOUNTAINS and the SEA
Photographs by Rony Zakaria

Edited by Rony Zakaria & Duncan Whyte

Co-published with 6by6press

... From Bali to Tengger and Parangtritis, Zakaria captures people in the flux of life. Fishermen and farmers struggling to earn a living taming the land and the sea, street vendors, sultanate servants and local religious leaders in their daily routine, praying women and men caught in the sea in purification rituals are all represented from the standpoint of the insider and as a result they do not become subjects of otherness or exoticism. Therefore, neither the rituals, nor the events themselves are obvious. For Zakaria, what the lens see is what he feels, not what he knows.
