Indonesia

Indonesia,known as Republic of Indonesia is a sovereign transcontinental country located mainly in Southeast Asia with some territories in Oceania.Situated between the Indian and Pacific Oceans,it’s the largest archipelagic country in the world, with more than 13 thousand islands and it’s the world’s fourth most populous country, the most populous Austronesian Nation,as well the most populous muslim majority country.Because Indonesia encompasses a sprawling archipelago, travelling around the country by local transports is still quite slow and sometimes complicated.Road transport is predominant, the rail transport system has four unconnected networks,sea transport is extremely important for economic integration and for domestic and foreign trade: this last one is well developed, with each of the major islands having at least one significant port city.A network of passenger ships makes longer connections to more remote islands, especially in the eastern part of the archipelago.This photographic project shows everyday indonesian life,crossing the country with local buses and ferries through some islands and long distances.Lots of people move between the islands looking for job, above all in Bali which is the most developed of all and they run small business and exchanges travelling everyday with this flow.
