These photos were taken in floating villages on the Tonle Sap Lake, near the border of Long An in Vietnam, where many Vietnamese immigrants are living in makeshift tents, hoping someday they would be able to become citizens. In these pictures, people have been blacked out, as a metaphor for their non-identity. (Text courtesy of the artist)
