DESCRIPTION

On 28 November 1975, East Timor declared independence from Portugal. Less than two weeks later Indonesian armed forces invaded the former colony with the aim of annexing it as Indonesia’s twenty-seventh province. 24 years later, after one of the most brutal subjugations in the modern age, the initial declaration of independence became a reality and the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste was born. Chris Whitelaw’s photographic exhibition, The Shades of November, commerates the sacrifice made by thousands of Timorese men, women and children in their struggle for independence.
