East Timor August 1999

Later that afternoon we drove towards Becora, a pro-Independence stronghold, where we had heard there was a clash taking place - but we came in from the wrong side. It was hard to tell who was who, they all looked alike, no uniforms to distinguish who was who. This time we made sure we had the car facing the other way - around so we could make a fast getaway if we needed. As soon as the militia saw us they started to chase us, firing shots as they ran - they were so close I could hear their footsteps behind me. By the time we got to the car the driver was in a panic and was trying to take off and leave us - the wheels were spinning but he had the hand brake on or something, so he wasn’t going anywhere - I thought it was all over. Then my colleague Kemal the journalist either grabbed the hand brake or convinced the driver to stop allowing us the time to dived inside the back of the car. Suddenly we were covered in glass. One of the militia man failed to get his last shot off, so he through his still loaded pipe-gun through the back window of our car.

I have been trying to track down people I had photographed during East Timor’s fight for independence in 1999. The project’s aim is to find the survivors and continue to tell their stories, a task made even more difficult by the fact I had made the decision not to record names at that time, not wanting my notes to fall into the wrong hands and place people at risk. It was a dangerous time for everyone. The other day, two close friends, UNMIT photographers Martine Perret and Dino Soares, graciously managed to track down a family I had photographed in Dili back then. The photograph shows the family having just returned to the burnt out remains of their home. It was tense, as rampaging Militia, alongside Indonesian soldiers, were continuing to torch nearby buildings. I was immediately struck by that look of concern on the father’s face. I took a photograph and moved on. On March 22nd, 2011, it was an absolute pleasure to be formally introduced to Marsal Guterres and his family, wife Tereza Da Silva Almeida Dos Santos, daughter Martina Margarida Guterres, 13 years old, and son, Jacinto Guterres Da Silva, 11.
