Join us for the book launch of Men, Mountains & The Sea — the second book by photographer Rony Zakaria. In Men, Mountains and the Sea, Rony Zakaria takes up the most cliched geographical feature of his country, Indonesia, matching morphologically and conceptually the more than 150 active volcanoes and 80,000km coastline with the people who inhabit them.
This session will include a sharing session by the photographer about the project, followed by a Q&A and a book signing.
Copies of this book will also be available at Objectifs’ physical and online stores from 1 Feb 2020.
