With "At Sea" (海上) Chongqing native freelance photographer Li Jie (李杰) follows his interest in tribal life. This time he leaves the Chinese mainland to an undisclosed area that borders Malaysian, Indonesian, and Philippine territories and sea rights, and only recently has been claimed by Malaysia (probably near the islands of the Litigan group west of Sabah).
Despite security restrictions on filming and shooting Li managed to document the simple days of the islanders, frequently in their wooden houses near a calm part of the ocean, away from technology, electricity, education, and government in a free lifestyle with all its up and downs.
The free exhibition is on display through August 18 at the Cannes Bay in Huayang (Cannes Bay (Binghe Lu Yizhou Dadao, 2nd Section 戛纳湾金棕榈进行本次影展 益州大道滨河路二段).
