Jakarta, Indonesia - 2010

Urban poverty is often hidden, also in Jakarta. The pronounced contrast between rich and poor. The poorer, the closer they live near the railway or the flooded rivers. Some of them almost live on the railway. The statistics mention about 30% of the Jakarta population, my eyes see many, far too many… But I rarely saw, in comparable situations, so many hopeful faces, listened to so many optimistic talks.
