CATHOLICISM IN INDONESIA (2000-2005)

Although from a Confucian family, as a child Swan Ti Ng ended up in a Catholic school, after which baptism followed. Once an adult, Swan Ti Ng realized that her faith went no further than the obligatory church attendance. To investigate her religious identity, she decided to photograph CATHOLICISM IN INDONESIA (2000-2005). Officially the country recognizes five religions (Protestantism, Catholicism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam), and one's affiliation is noted in one's passport. But in practice, Swan It Ng discovered, the country exhibits a mishmash of traditions and beliefs. An adherent of one faith has no problem about using rituals from another.
