Jakarta, Java, INDONESIA

A resident from a village compound that is soon to be flattened to make way for skyscrapers in the Taman Rasuna area, leaves for work early in the morning. With foreign direct investment in 2012 topping that of the previous year by 26%, shopping centres and luxury residential complexes are popping up on every available plot of land. These projects provide much day-work for manual labourers and the small army of security guards deemed necessary to protect them from the homegrown terrorist threat that has seen several bars and hotels targeted throughout the country in recent years. Much of the traditional suburban village atmosphere of this traditionally low-rise city is disappearing in a cloud of smog and cement dust from hastily constructed flyovers and elevated roads.
