PHOTOGRAPHER Motor City

Jakarta brings together people from all across the vast Indonesian archipelago. The best part of this assignment was photographing Friday prayers at the Istiqlal. Seeing the mass of people prostrate as one gave me goosebumps. It was truly humbling.” Yes, the city’s notorious traffic was bad during peak hours, “but there is a hack: using motorcycle taxis which make for thrilling rides.” Instagram: @weixianglimsg.
