Artist's Description

The difficulty faced by the Project Manager on construction projects in busy CBDs (Central Business Districts) is how to get building materials (invariably carried on large trucks) to the site through streets crowded with traffic throughout the working day. Nowhere is this more critical than in Jakarta, Indonesia, a city known internationally for its traffic jams. Given that it is reported that it can take a whole day for a container truck to travel just 12km from the docks to the nearest highway, it is quite conceivable that the cement could well set in the back of the truck while still on the way to site!

The solution to this is to work outside of normal working hours… So, as most of us are beginning to relax at home in the evening, building sites around the CBD are springing to action. The site in this image was still lit up and active the following morning when I got up to see/photograph it at sunrise!

This is a 30 sec. exposure, with ‘movement blur’ on the tower crane
