Current Photo Exhibition: Rony Zakaria/Indonesia



Everything tastes sweet in the island of Java. During the days of the Dutch administration, Java was one of the biggest producers of sugar in the world. Today, only 60 factories remain. Indonesia now grows very little of the sugar it consumes and is now the world's second biggest importer of sugar after Russia. But the cultural celebration, big steam machinery and hard working laborers are still there as a reminder of the sweet glory days of the past.

Born 1984 in Jakarta, Indonesia. Rony Zakaria holds a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. He started his career as a photographer after graduation. He learned photojournalism at ANTARA Gallery of Photojournalism in Jakarta and Ateneo de Manila in the Philippines as a fellow. Since then he has worked mainly for national and foreign publications and has covered various issues in his native, Indonesia.

Rony has won several accolades and awards for his work, including NPPA Best of Photojournalism and Mochtar Lubis Award for Investigative reporting. He has exhibited his work widely in Paris, Manila, Bangladesh, Singapore, Thailand, Germany and Malaysia in 2013, he published his first monograph, Encounters. A personal work with photographs collected starting from the beginning of his career.

He lives in Jakarta but continues to travel.

Norwegian film 'KON-TIKI', Huge Success
The screening of the Norwegian film ' KON-TIKI' was a huge success, with a sell-out crowd at the Club, made up of members and non-members. Everyone enjoyed the Oscar-nominated, gripping sea-adventure, which was one of the biggest box-office hits in Norway.

The speciality Norwegian beer and salmon, served by the Norwegian Embassy, were much appreciated too.
