With an area of 42,198,100 hectares or 3 times the size of Java Island, Papua is the largest province in Indonesia. Many said that Papua is the pearl of eastern Indonesia. In fact, the discussion about the future of Papua is just like an irony of the double-edged sword.

Currently, almost all of Papua's natural resources continue to be extracted, including forests in it. The biggest challenge faced by local communities is an imbalance of knowledge and skills at the right time so they have trouble adjusting to rapid changes and benefit from such changes.

The fast-growing of information technology has challenged the way of thinking, lifestyles of the Papua people.

In this case, they begin to question their identity. Perhaps, they are aiming to become expert photographer?
