Photographer's Note

This is called Becak in Indonesian, a tricycle transportation.

In 1990, by the goverment people in jakarta, due to humanitary issue, they banned the becak to operate in Jakarta. However it can still be found in the suburb of jakarta, or a smaller city like Cimahi, West Java, where i took this picture.

I sometimes feel poor to see when they work and pedal the Becak up the hills or a higher ground with a passenger inside. however that is how the society life works in Indonesia.
