By Noel Trustrum, Dr
Behind the stunning photos and personal accounts of Aceh Revives there is a secondary theme. Author, scientist and photographer, Dr Trustrum, produced the book while recovering from cancer. For Trustrum, it was a type of therapy and the resilience of the Acehnese people inspired ...him to move beyond his own personal struggle for good health.
More than 230,000 people were killed in 14 countries. Indonesia, and particularly the province of Aceh in Sumatra, was one of the worst hit. More than 170,000 lives were lost and half a million of the province's population of 4.5 million were left homeless. The tsunami washed away hundreds of kilometres of roads and destroyed 120 bridges.
This is Trustrum's second book documenting the recovery of Indonesia since the tsunami.

It features a sequence of photos of landscapes and people during the recovery over a nine-month period after the earthquake and tsunami.Read more
