This series is an ode to the people who work on the dam threatened Mekong River and all associated tributaries that bring life, or death, to the people, flora and fauna who live near the river in the Tibetan plateaus, Mayanmar, China, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. The Mekong is the most bio-diverse freshwater river on our planet.

I was thigh deep in the warm waters of a Mekong tributary, it was approaching sunset and the red dust in the air creates a beautiful soft light in Cambodia at certain times of the day. The fisherman had cast his net and then sat, still, watching the river water approaching and waiting for the next school of fish to come through.

Kampong Cham is situated on the central lowlands of the Mekong River in an area known as the Mekong Delta. The river here is large and wide. This image of the smiling lady on her shop boat which travels around the houses, selling everything from lettuce to hair dye. Made whilst I was on the water being paddled by a local fisherman who was showing me his families life. It’s an amazing area and life living on the river seemed to be full of challenge, community and colour.

The Teuk Chhou river in Kampot is part sea and part freshwater and right at the bottom of the Mekong Delta region, fed partly by the Mekong river and partly by a source originating in the Cardamon Mountain range.
This photograph was made at sunrise at the side of the river where the night fishing boats come in. The local market stall holders arrive to buy the freshest fish, the atmosphere is exciting, the light stunning and people full of character. If you go find the lady who sells the donuts.
