Photographer's Note

Kampung Ayer (Water Village)is very important part of Bandar Seri Begawan, capital of Brunei. It comprises of 28 quarters where live about 30.000 people. Here, the village's centuries-old web of homes, markets, mosques, schools, medical clinics and police and fire stations hovers on stilts over the shallows of the Brunei River. Even today, water taxis are the most efficient and popular means of negotiating the Kampung's labyrinthine waterways. All buildings are connected by wooden walkways that enable their inhabitants normal life.
