Photographer's Note

Two Sea Bajau boys barely 5 years old posing by a fish trap off an island called Maiga, off the coast of Semporna in the east coast of Sabah.

It's Sunday morning almost everyday to these Sea Bajau children. In the morning, would see these children wading in their backyard hunting for crabs and fishes, left behind in tidal pools by the ebbing tide.

Most of them couldn't go to school. The Sea Bajaus are mostly stateless and without citizenship and the papers that go with it, they don't have documents that permit them to attend school or employment.
