53 imagesMarket places is a social photography project on local communities facing globalization and the consequences of an increasingly homogeneous world in Papua, Indonesia. Indonesian Papua has the perfect terrain to document the effects of globalization on local communities. Indeed, in a very short period, these people and their cultures have been disrupted by the sudden opening to the world and the rampant 'modernization' that followed with its annexation by Indonesia in 1969. This ongoing project is supported by 'Fondation Indépendance', of the Banque Internationale à Luxembourg.
