Wicak Baskoro finds that survival for these Indonesian farmers has steep consequences.
These local farmers are planting crops on the side of Mount Slamet, the second highest peak on the island of Java, Indonesia, and one of the most active volcanos in the region. Volcanic eruptions are not the only threat in the area: the steep sides of this mountain also increase the potential for landslides. Planting trees on the sides of this volcano could prevent future landslides, but most farmers are unaware of this and there are no regulations in place to encourage them to do so. Here, the farmers are cultivating lettuce because the long harvesting period of trees would have a significant impact on them financially. To me, this represents the courage that Indonesian farmers have when dealing with economic and ecological problems. While the types of crops they grow may affect their future, they must also figure out how to survive today.

THE NOT-SO-SECRET LIFE OF DIKKE DENNIS
Janet Greco discovers that her subject has made a permanent mark on Amsterdam.
Introduce us to someone interesting at: jpgmag.com/themes/3
I didn’t know it at the time, but Dikke Dennis is quite a famous guy. I used to see him almost every day when I would pass his tattoo shop located in the Jordaan neighborhood of Amsterdam. The name of the shop was 666, and it said “Dikke Dennis” on the window. I finally found out that this was his name, which translates to Thick Dennis. He would often sit out front with an array of characters, some of whom were quite intimidating. Eventually, I found the courage to ask if I could take some pictures inside his tattoo shop. This is a digitally stitched panorama taken towards the end of the shoot when Dennis and Patricia started watching television because they got bored of me. I found out during the shoot that not only is a he a well-known tattoo artist, but he is also famous for being in the band Peter Pan Speedrock, appearing on TV and in a movie, and even having a book written about him.
Iguanas are both hunted and protected in Honduras. Allison Inloes explores the refuge where thousands of iguanas feel at home.
This photo was taken at an iguana farm in Roatán, a small island off the coast of Honduras. For the past 30 years, the farm has served as a refuge for iguanas, and protected them from local hunters. Currently, about 2,700 iguanas consider this 15-acre property their home. My younger cousin Julie was looking around the farm and petting the iguanas when I took this picture. They had just been fed, which is why there are so many congregated in one area. It might seem a little scary that she had so many iguanas around her, but they are very mellow, so I think Julie found the situation humorous.

SIGHTINGS FROM THE PIT
AMONGST THE STACKS
Within the setting of a library, Daus Adrian discovers a musician that doesn’t do things by the book.
The interior décor of the restaurant and bar Bibliotheque draws its inspiration from libraries. Located at the center of Jakarta, Indonesia, Bibliotheque’s patrons are invited to dine on Eastern European and Middle Eastern cuisine, while they are surrounded by a collection of books that stretch to the ceiling. Every evening, the venue features an array of different music. This is DJ Gallant, a regular performer who mixes together classical music with anything from house, to disco, or current hits.

DECISIVE MOMENTS IN A NEW YORK MINUTE
Inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Nathan Weyland documents the culture found on the streets of New York.
THIS SIGHTING SPONSOREd bY
JPG partnered with the Museum of Modern Art New York to celebrate the exhibition, Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Modern Century, the first major US retrospective of the photographer’s work in three decades. The winner of our Photo Challenge: Inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Nathan Weyland, traveled to New York to see the exhibit and document the city’s culture. Find out about his adventure on the following pages, and see the runners-up on page 88!
The first thing that I saw at the Museum of Modern Art New York retrospective of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photography, was a series of wall-sized maps with crisscrossing arched lines that represent his near-constant travels during his career. He began traveling at age 22, and didn’t stop for over 40 years, so the list of countries that he explored extensively is quite impressive. Through the pages of Life and similar magazines, Bresson brought Americans their first intimate glimpses of distant countries. With this in mind, I decided to focus on what Bresson did for much of his career during my visit to New York: street life. In modern New York, one can emulate Bresson’s globetrotting agenda without leaving the five boroughs. Inspired by this idea, I visited Puerto Rican East Harlem, Wall Street, Indian Jackson Heights in Queens, Chinatown in Manhattan, the trendy Williamsburg in Brooklyn, and the wild Jamaica Bay. My goal was to document the culture of New York by capturing moments that constitute daily life throughout these neighborhoods as an homage to Henri Cartier-Bresson’s life work. The exhibition, Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Modern Century, is a reminder of how much the world has changed, and simultaneously how nothing has truly changed at all. Today, people are bombarded by images from around the world, so I pondered how Bresson’s work continues to endure. The answer is found in the pictures themselves, which largely depict relationships, daily life, and significant social events. As the curator of the exhibition, Peter Galassi, notes: Bresson’s true subjects were society and culture—cornerstones of our civilization. By focusing on these same subjects, I hoped to capture moments in New York society that reflect our culture today, and have the same timeless quality found in Bresson’s photographs.
