The prestigious Dutch Noorderlicht foundation commissioned six photographers (Alejandro Chaskielberg, James Whitlow Delano, Ed Kashi, Carl de Keyzer, Tomasz Tomaszewski, Francesco Zizola), to prepare a photographic report about sugar production in the former Dutch colonies and countries which had economic links with the Netherlands. “My task was to document sugar mills in Java.
