We are constantly on the move. At school, on the streets, at home or at work - even when we seem to be standing still, we are moving. As time passes, these moments will become memories and with photography I try to capture those moments in which we move. Through this exhibition I want to give a glimpse into the lives of six creative Moluccan individuals in the Netherlands.
Satu nae, semua nae - if 1 rises, everyone rises. My cousin Andre Leatomu has given me this wisdom which I would like to share with you.
I am organizing this exhibition to highlight the creativity of young Moluccan individuals. Creativity connects, and within the Moluccan community we are generally always looking for some kind of connection. Upon meeting each other for the first time we soon ask what the last name of this person is or from which kampong (village) in the Moluccas the person originates from. And sometimes if you also know that one aunt who is married to that one uncle and if you happen to know what they are doing.
Through this exhibition you can now find out what these six creative individuals are doing. Thus returning to the idea of satu nae, semua nae - let's connect with each other and lift each other to a higher level, both within the creative as well as the Moluccan community in the Netherlands.
