Photographer's Note

Badjaos also known as boat people. Badjaos are Muslim tribe in the Philippines mostly residing in Visayas and Mindanao. They spend most of the time on their boat lurking on ports waiting for passenger vessels to arrive. On board passengers would throw coins at the sea afterwhich they would dive to catch the coin. Badjaos are expert divers, newly born babies are already taught to swim. Mothers would carry their child on their back and dive.
