Becak Drivers

2005 International Photography Exhibition
“Becak Drivers"
Location: Bandung, West Java, Indonesia
Photographer: Eveline Tedjokusumo
Category: People
Award: Honorable Mention

In the photographer's words: "Becak is one of the traditional ways of transportation in Indonesia. I give a lot of respect and admiration for these Becak drivers. This photo shows them waiting for someone to use their services. They work very hard to earn some money just to get them through for the day. Although the money they earned was not very much, they were pleased to be able to earn the money on their own. This photo represents their tremendous spirit in living their lives."
