“TROTOAR” , the Lost Children of Indonesia” ia a photographic essay on how children slip through the cracks of our society and vanish from our view because of mind-numbing poverty, and our own tragic and selfish inattention. This book is a small step towards understanding and reaching out. Let’s make sure together that it will become the first solid stone of a contribution towards the rehabilitation of these children.

In Indonesian Trotoar (‘Trottoir” in French) means ‘sidewalk’. Born to poor to pay for official registration, many children in large cities of Indonesia are without identity cards.

“In photographing their secret struggle, living off sidewalks, railroads, garbage dumps, flooded riversides, performing in the street, begging or selling themselves, I wanted to show their courage of surviving, each and every day in face of adversity and suffering, yet with that unmistakable sparkle of hope in their eyes.  I feel privileged to have been invited to photograph these children for the first book of Wadah Foundation. I hope that this book will serve as a tool to spread a message of love and generosity towards all the children in the world”.
