The earthquake. Bantul
25-AUG-2006

The earthquake. Bantul

She lives in a tent while the family is rebuilding the house, destroyed by the earthquake in may 2006.
A great disaster for her, but they can rebuild: many families in the neighbpourhood are just sitting on their recuperated bricks, no money to buy materials...

Joel this is very powerfull work....You sense the dispair of the quake victims. The expression on the woman her face + the makeshift house in the background tell the story of the horror that family endured. Very respectfuly shot and framed to perfection. Congratulations on this very fine image - wish I could vote 10 times for this.

Good capture, but a sad history. The nature often is bad with who less have. -V-
