Yayasan Cinta Anak Bangsa (YCAB Foundation) along with Indonesia Leica Community (id.L) launched a photo essay book called the “Angel of Change: On the Flipside” at Kinokuniya Bookstore, Plaza Senayan.
This book tells the story and the struggle of Indonesian women as agents of change in their families. The photographs taken by id.L portray the dedication and dignity of Indonesian women who are the backbone of the family struggling for the welfare of their children.
Each purchase of the book “Angel of Change: On The Flipside” is donated to the YCAB Foundation. “Coming from our admiration for YCAB’s good work, we wanted to create a photo essay project to show the optimistic side of underprivileged communities. We tried to document these pictures not only through our eyes, but also through our hearts. In these communities, we feel that there is a genuine passion, and dignity from these remarkable women. At the end of the project, we felt that we had been giving too little compared to what we got from them. We hope the photo essay will be able to say what we feel when we meet our sisters face to face,” says Jerry Justianto, an id.L representative.
