Photographer's Note

Homes of the Sea Bajau, nomads of the sea. Although there is some contradiction between being a sea nomad who moves around the area all the time and having a permanent home, those people, just like everybody, certainly need one. Even if this home is very basic, rickety house made of bamboo and dried palm leafes, it provides shelter from the rain (and the sun as well), and is a safe place for children. It is a place you come back to after a hard days work. And even if you decide to move to another island - well, if don't possess much, you don't have much to leave behind.
