A photo series on the current struggles of Cambodian people fighting for their land rights – from urban areas being engulfed by development to indigenous lands being lost to economic land concessions. With texts edited by Ananth Baliga and created in collaboration with various NGOs on the ground, this project travelled around the country to interview some of the communities fighting back and keeping the hope of keeping their homes.
