Sumbawa in my eyes | Indonesia

"I was excited when a friend offered me to do a photo assignment about the island of Sumbawa . I said yes because I knew that I would visit a beautiful island and this experience would bring me in close contact to unique cultural experience at the same time. Great landscape, beaches, people, and cultural traditions are a great combination. "

Sumbawa island is a part of Indonesian archipelago. Located east of Lombok in Nusa Tenggarah, larger than Bali and Lombok with an Area 15,448 sq. km, population about 800.00. The majority of which are occupied with agriculture and fishing. The people here are, like on Lombok, mainly muslim. Christian missionaries did not even bother to come here. Some old animistic traditions are also alive.The soil is fertile and the most important activities are the production of rice, maize, beans, timber, cattle and minerals.

Traditionally Sumbawa has been divided between two main group of people, each with their own language : Sumbawanesse in the west and Bimanesse in the east. The western population are related to the sasak people on Lombok, while in the east there is a clear relation to people of Flores. Sumbawa was like sumba under control of the Majapahit kingdom in the 14th century.
