Conflict between groups inflicts pain on people who have no say in the fight. After fleeing Myanmar army troops, hundreds of Rohingya children struggle for food at Balukhali refugee camp in southern Bangladesh. In 2017 at least 700,000 Rohingya were forced to flee a campaign of murder, rape, and devastation by Myanmar’s army, seeking safety in refugee camps in Bangladesh.
From my latest story for @natgeo, Us vs Them, Things That Divide Us, in the March 2018 single topic issue on Race. Link is in my Instagram bio.
Follow me @johnstanmeyer over the next month as I publish each day on my Instagram account images from this global project I photographed for the magazine throughout 2017, a visual dialogue on what divides us to understand why we don’t get along, including images as this from Bangladesh. Join me on this story through the US, Brazil, Armenia, the Middle East, Bangladesh and Rwanda, lacing together a complex narrative in order to find a means to no longer divide ourselves. #IDefineMe
