During his residency Roy captured the city and its daily life. He explored the city�s insight and its problems. As a street photographer he paid attention on urbanity subject matter.
As long as he walked through the city�s streets he often lost his sense of direction. But he enjoyed it anyway. �In these in between moments of losing sense of direction I can make photos that give me sense to the city,� he said.
Roy�s photos show us some aspects. Those photos are documentary city�s life in a particular time. Through his photos he learns how to understand Indonesian culture and those also as a method of introducing who he is.
