I just came back from Indonesia, where I spent more than 2 years (September 2010- December 2012), with a cultural scholarship. Within this time I spent a couple of months in some remote communities, in South Kalimantan, Seram-Maluku and South Papua, focused on their life style.
I relied on my Indonesian friends and on locals to find some of those isolated communities which are not yet so altered by missionaries, government and business-mans.I never used a touristic agencies or guide, and anyway I doubt that an agencies could help some way. I tried to find information about such places through some Indonesian universities, but proofed to be not very useful, so the network of relationships with the locals helped me.
Here r some of the photos which I took there: https://picasaweb.google.com/115390757376477505614
Now I’m starting to work here (in Romania) with some friends on documentaries projects based on my experiences in Indonesia, so I’ll be back to Indonesia in a few month…
I’d like to know more about ur project, and I’m interested in being a fixer there.
Have a nice weekend,
