“The person who looks at the photographs feels as if they are
there.”..through the lens of his camera, Mathias Heng tells the
people’s stories – ordinary lives which are extraordinarily
resilient. Many of you who open these pages will not have been to
East Timor, but you will be drawn nonetheless, beckoned into the
world of the East Timorese – into the lives, the warmth and humanity
of a people who never stopped believing in who they are.” – wrote
