Entry Description

Eight years in the making, Timor Runguranga is the first contemporary photography book coming out from the youngest nation in Asia. An epic photobook, taking you on an unforgettable journey through the wild, wild east of Timor-Leste. A country of unparalleled beauty, yet unrivalled contradictions, where old traditions collide with new modern worlds, and the sacred meets the profane. David Palazón’s curious nature and unique sense of humour bring us close into the hearts and lives of the Timorese people, capturing the fleeting, incidental moments of those he met on his journey through this young nation. The photobook features 60 carefully selected contributions by Timor- related leading authors, artists, and photographers, giving further depth to this outstanding visual exploration of the young nation.
