Raja Ampat, a child's dream
I travelled to Indonesia in February and March 2018. Among all the places I visited, it was the people of Raja Ampat on the archipelago in West Papua province – and neighbour to Papua New Guinea – who particularly stood out for me. I noticed some facts around this paradise of crystalline blue waters, and especially the children, that have inspired this work.
This project focuses on the importance of education in our children in one hand and how privileged we are in the western world; and in the other hand it explores and makes us question why high education and accomplishing big goals doesn’t guarantee happiness, (i.e. suicide rates keep on increasing.) These people from Raja Ampat seems to live, nevertheless, happy, simple but happy lives. That’s exactly what makes me question if we can find together a middle point to both worlds.
