This year Indonesia celebrates 70 year of independence from The Netherlands. In what way is colonial history still visible in contemporary Indonesia? Traveling over Java this history seems to be vanished by modern times. But is this history really gone? To visualise how Indonesia deals with it’s colonial past, I cycle over the first real road on Java: The Jalan Raya Pos or The Great Post Road. A 1000 km long road that connects east and west Java, built by Dutchman Daendels in 1808.

During this trip over Java I send out paper post to people supporting this project. Images that come straight of the project are included in this post. When the project is finished in Oktober, I'll be working on a small, handmade publication. If you want to become part of this project, please back me on the Indiegogo website.
