With help from the American Institute for Indonesian Studies, I am heading back to Indonesia soon, to develop my next book project. More information posted soon!
I've recently instigated a new writing project, a more comprehensive history of photography from Indonesia. Rather than writing the whole text, I am writing several of the essays, and commissioning other writers to contribute as well. Thus far, all is coming along splendidly, and I've recruited a number of tremendous writers, including Karen Strassler, Wimo Bayang, Astri Wright, Gael Newton, Krisna Murti, and Adelina Luft, among many others. I've posted a few draft excerpts on my blog, so please take a look!
