Project Introduction:

 This series of landscape photographs, “Coastal regions: Delta”, explores the impacts of the recent climate changes on the landscapes. The photographer traveled along the coastal regions, from Ang Giang, Tien Giang, Ca Mau, and Bac Lieu to Ben Tre, where drought, salt intrusion, soil erosion, and sea level rise have been observed. She documented the transforming land and lives. 

 “Coastal regions: Delta” informs viewers about the resilience that the residents endure, and the shocks and stresses that are dealt with, both at state and individual levels. Additionally, human’s desire to control the nature in order to meet with the energy demands generates unforeseeable life challenges to many who live along the Mekong River. For instance, the hydropower dam construction had the ambition to make the Mekong River as the battery of Southeast Asia and to supply the high-energy demands required by the rapidly developing cities such as Bangkok. However, this multi nations project, created with conflictual interests, produced undesirable and paradoxical outcomes in the coastal regions of the Mekong Delta, such as the dam retaining the water during dry season, creating a shortage of water supply downstream.

Since 2005, the photographer has explored the Mekong Delta area. Her photographic works focus on people’s lives affected by environmental and/or socio economical conditions.  In this series, the photographer aimed at addressing the impacts of the climate change and the complex chain reaction it generates, on the land and people. The unpredictable weather conditions will induce significant fall in rice and fishery production. The shortage in fresh water supply will induce increase in pesticide usages and difficulties in livestock farming. Thus, food security will be at risk and inevitably those who cannot have the ends meet will start leaving their home, migration will instigate.
