Timor-Leste's Referendum for Independence: 20 Years On

The photographic documentary by Ronny Susanto captures his visit to Timor-Leste in 2017. Ronny was on the ground to observe the Parliamentary Election held to determine whether the East Timorese people accepted or rejected a proposal from the Indonesian government for them to be given a Special Autonomous Region status within of the Republic of Indonesia. The photos reflect the pride and optimism of a place that looks to the future rather than holding on to the past.
