Through Lenses: Images of Timor Leste
East Timor Exhibit


Through December 2003
Asia Collection
Fourth Floor, Hamilton Library

Yati Barnard, Southeast Asia Librarian, has created a beautiful exhibit on East Timor, the world's newest nation. The exhibit consists of photographs and Yati's observations of the country during her visit there last summer.

Yati writes:

In June 2003, I visited Timor Leste (East Timor) for the first time. Travelers throughout history have produced images of their journeys, which to some extent have shaped the way people understand or perceive the places that they represent in their images. Unlike earlier travelers who equipped themselves with paper, canvas, pencils, brushes, charcoals and pellets, I equipped myself with 3.2 megapixel digital camera, and these are some of the results.
East Timor is more than what you see in these images. These are a very small representation of the nations landscapes, seascapes, public monuments and buildings. Do not let your imagination about East Timor be limited by these pictures. Imagine more and hope that you, too, will one day visit this new nation with your own camera. But, also keep in mind, image is not everything & Obrigăda!
