Nomadic People Who Are At Home in the Sea (15 pics)

James Morgan is a UK photographer who documented the lives of the Southeast Asian culture, the Bajau Laut. These people are nomads who live at the sea and survive by fishing for food.

The Bajau are a nomadic Malay people who have lived at sea for centuries, primarily in a tract of ocean by the Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

Bajau traditionally live on handmade "lepa-lepa" boats, bringing everything they need to sea, including cooking utensils, kerosene lamps, food, water, and even plants. They come to shore only to trade or fix their boats.
