'Heritage in Transition' can be visited at Gedung Tjipta Niaga in Jalan Kalibesar III in Kota Tua, Jakarta and tells the story of the area’s revitalisation from a social perspective. In addition to the exhibition there will be a book of photos that also covers Semarang, where similar developments are taking place.

Isabelle Boon is a photographer from Rotterdam. Her specific interest is the small details of everyday life. How people make a living, run a home, spend their days off – all of these daily activities tell a lot about people and their social (and sometimes historical) context. She studied photography in Utrecht. Her previous exhibitions include the World Expo Milan in 2015.
