A floating House in the village of Kampong Luong, Cambodia.
A People in Limbo, many living entirely on the water. Floating villages spread across the surface of the Mekong River’s waterways, playing host to ethnic Vietnamese whose status in Cambodian society is perpetually adrift. “The Floating World” is a reportage done with The New Times Magazine. A story that aims to shed a light on the conditions of some of the most invisible members of the global stateless.

Mount Ijen, on the Island of Java, Indonesia, hosts one of the last remaining active sulfur mines in the world
Hadis, portrayed in this picture, is 36 years old, and he has been a full-time miner for 10 years.
Every day, miners make the arduous trek up Ijen’s 9,000-foot slopes under the cover darkness before descending another 3,000 feet into the crater.
As a reporter, I have always loved photographing people’s life at night. And it has always been a technical problem to be solved. The Sony A7RM3 and its incredible sensitivity is a great resource.

People build floating dwellings on top of waters where citizenship papers are not required. Despite being built on the water, the floating villages operate similarly to villages on land. There are grocery stores, schools, barbers, temples.

Cambodia, floating village of Chhnok Trou. The Vietnamese community celebrates a one-month-old grandson with an afternoon party.
The Tonle Sap lake supports a massive freshwater ecosystem, which in turn supports the people who live around it in floating villages. Many of the Cambodian villagers are stateless Vietnamese immigrants. The families build floating dwellings on top of waters where citizenship papers are not required. Despite being built on the water, the floating villages operate similarly to villages on land. There are grocery stores, schools, barbers, temples.

A picture from “The Floating World” my latest assignment for The New Times Magazine.
Nguyen Ti Ah, a young Vietnamese girl who lives in the poorest neighborhood in Kampong Luong.
Floating villages are improvised ghettoes to which the country’s largest minority has been unwillingly confined.
The vast majority of Cambodia’s ethnic Vietnamese are undocumented, with no recourse to institutions that would allow them medical care, education, or—most crucially—the right to own or live on land. The inability to register births leads to a cycle of statelessness that passes from generation to generation and leaves villagers vulnerable to random fines, extortion, mob violence, and forced relocation. As Cambodia modernizes, such encroachments are becoming more common.
In Cambodia, where the concepts of nationality and ethnicity are inextricable, members of the ethnic Vietnamese minority are known as "yuon", a ubiquitous slur that is sometimes translated as “savage”. This story aims to shed a light on the conditions of some of the most invisible members of the global stateless. Check it out on the NYTmag website.

An aerial view of Nosy Iranja. Located north-west of Madagascar, Nosy Iranja is formed by two islands connected by a sandbank, only visible at low tide.
On Nosy Iranja there is a small fishing village, made by simple wooden huts surrounded by the vegetation and the ocean. I wish I could live there one day.
My latest work from Madagascar is in print this week on Vanity Fair.

Young fishermen returning to the island of Nosy Iranja. Nosy Iranja is located north-west of Madagascar, 45 kilometers (30 miles) from Nosy Be. Nosy Iranja is actually formed by two islands, Nosy Iranja Be, the bigger one and Nosy Iranja Kely. Those are connected by a sandbank, only visible at low tide. On the island of Nosy Iranja Be there is a small fishing village, with huts made of wood and vegetation. I wish I could live there one day.

My latest work for Vanity Fair is in print this week. For this assignment, I was so lucky to travel along beautiful Madagascar. Here an aerial view of the Nosy Iranja Island and its famous white-sand beach.
Nosy Iranja is located north-west of Madagascar, 45 kilometers (30 miles) from Nosy Be. Nosy Iranja is actually formed by two islands, Nosy Iranja Be, the bigger one and Nosy Iranja Kely. Those are connected by a sandbank, only visible at low tide.
On Nosy Iranja Be there is a small fishing village and a lighthouse designed by Gustav Eiffel. The island is also the breeding place for two species of turtles, green and hawksbill.

I’m happy to join the photographers' team of the Sony Ambassador program.
To celebrate the news I’m sharing this pictures from my work “Sulfur Road”. Mount Ijen, on the Island of Java, Indonesia, hosts one of the last remaining active sulfur mines in the world.
This has been a tough one in very harsh conditions, the Sony 7RIII has been essential to getting the shoot.
Stay tuned for my next projects.
Thanks #SonyAlpha for this opportunity.
