Photographer's Note

East-Timor is located geographically in Oceania, although it is sometimes assigned to Asia instead. Consists of the eastern half of the island of Timor, the nearby islands of Atauro and Jaco, and Oecussi-Ambeno, an exclave of East Timor situated on the northwestern side of the island, surrounded by West Timor.

Since East-Timor became independent, no serious photographic work has been done. At least not an in-depth work, because simply it's not easy. Thus, this image and some more I'll post here are, in a way, unique and are the result of many hours and effort to mingle. Some moments where registered only because, at some point, I started to be seen as one of them and not a mere foreigner.

This kid was pretending he was some kind of "Bruce Lee", which is frequent among east timorese young boys, as they watch a lot of fighting movies, namely from Bolywood and Holywood. The elastics around the wrists are something to be proud of and can be used for a lot of games.

I hope you enjoy!
