Overview

In these images of contemporary life in East Timor, Steve Cox illustrates the reality of existence under Indonesian occupation and the horror of events such as the 1991 Santa Cruz massacre. Having lived among and gained the trust of the Timorese, his photographs unmask the deceptions of Indonesian government propaganda and provide substance to foreign journalists whose reports are heavily circumscribed by police restrictions. These insights into the daily struggle with suffering and death in East Timor are accompanied by an authoritative historical introduction of events since 1975 by Peter Carey.
