Weightless

This is a series of portraits of Maldivian girls floating on the surface of the Indian ocean. It explores the bright identities of a nation that is under the threat of disappearance. The Maldives are expected to be swallowed by water. If the sea-level rises with the same pace, the islands will be wiped off the map by the end of this century. Though the amount of dry land decreases, young generation of Maldivians do not hold a grudge against water. These girls enjoy spending time in the warm salty ocean feeling weightless and safe.
