Stateless Families
Project info

Hundreds of ethnic Bajau people, who have migrated from southern part of Philippines due to ethnic riots, have been living, stateless, at the submerged coastal islands of Malaysia for decades. They become stateless citizens.

This series of images were captured on some of the islands off Semporna in Sabah near the Filipino's border. These stateless families don’t have any access to modern education, healthcare and civil rights.
