TERNATE ISLAND
AN INDONESIA'S EMERALD AT EQUATOR
Ternate is the largest city in the Indonesian province of North Maluku and an island in the Maluku Islands. It was the capital of the former Sultanate of Ternate and de facto provincial capital of 
North Maluku before being moved to Sofifi in 2010. 

The islands were once the world's single major producer of cloves, a commodity that allowed their sultans to become amongst the wealthiest and most powerful of all sultans in the Indonesian region. In the precolonial era, Ternate was the dominant political and economic power over most of the "Spices Islands" of Maluku.

The "Ternate Essay" was a pioneering account of evolution by natural selection written on the island by Alfred Russel Wallace in 1858 and famously sent to Charles Dsarwin. Darwin at once responded by publishing Wallace's essay alongside his own accounts of the theory.
HERE my photography around TERNATE ISLAND from my perspective in BLACK AND WHITE. All place around this island is a minimalism view witch a lot of mangrove tree and a traditional jetty.
