Photographer's Note

back to the portraits now...


Semarang is a major city on the northen coast of Java. There are no major tourist sites, but we really appreciated the vibe in the old town center, where lots of Dutch colonial architecture is being restored with love and a lot of patience and goodwill.


This picture was shot at the Lawang Sebu, an enormous building which used to house the administrative offices of the Dutch colonial railways.

These dressed up lady visitors were touring the site with their husbands. Wandering around the building, we met them a few times. We didn't share a language, so we exchanged smiles and glances, and they didn't seem to mind me taking some pictures.
