A common view in Aceh beaches: man with bare chest, woman covered up in veil.
I took this picture at Suak Ribe beach, Meulaboh, West Aceh district.
Yesterday afternoon I sat with a journalist friend. In between our talks about his works, suddenly he said, "I feel disturbed."
"Have you heard the story of that photographer?"
"Which one? The one caught for Sharia misconduct?"
"Yes. Do you know the details?"
Hesitating, I said no. I only read the news about disaster and local election.
"What happened to him?"
"It's not really about him that I think about. It's about the girl he photographed."
