Timor and Rote
On the road to the crocodile islands!
Text & photo Anouk Garcia


On the southern borders of Indonesia, off Australia, was born from the steep back of an immense crocodile, the island of Timor. Impenetrable, protected by a fringe of steep mountains, this little-known island is the temple of a wild nature, inhabited by many ethnic groups.
Here the ancestors are celebrated! The land where the spirits watch, where the crops are celebrate, shelters sumptuous deserted beaches, hidden villages, protected by totems, where still weave handmade ornaments to the sacred motives.
