The 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. Follow @andrea_frazzetta to know more about my next projects #cambodia #floatingvillage #asia
