The Spice Trade’s Forgotten Island | PROOF

“I want to show how the history of global trade shaped people’s fate and how it might not be as glorious as we’ve heard. The spice trade brought fortunes for the seafaring Europeans, but it acted like a curse for the islanders. … While history clearly provides us certain lessons, we only can learn them if we are aware of it.”

— Muhammad Fadli, fotografer of Run Island
