Surabaya Beat : A Photobook by Beat Presser, Hardback Book

Surabaya Beat : A Photobook by Beat Presser Hardback


Indonesia is the country with the biggest fleet in the world; no other place on earth has more islands, boats, and ships.

This book celebrates maritime Indonesia through the cooperation of a European photographer and several Indonesian writers, who complete stunning images with compelling poetry and stories.

This book takes the reader on a quest along Javanese coast between Surabaya and Semarang and continued beyond Java, sailing to Sulawesi, where pinisi sailing schooners have been built for centuries.

On every page, the romanticism of wind-powered travel evokes a past age when sail ruled the seas.
