Aceh 1990

Aceh, at the far north of Sumatra Island, was a dangerous place in 1990. A brutal war was waged against Acehnese separatists by the Indonesian army and not much was known about it in the rest of the world. I went there for the now dead magazine Asiaweek and the story about how I did that is published on the Dutch photography website PhotoQ.

See also my other pictures from Aceh in 1999 and 2005.
