Transient camp



examines the camp sites of a small and largely unseen community of foreign workers, who live amongst the rolling sand dunes of a large land reclamation project. Their makeshift tents are constructed from scavenged construction rubbish consisting of mostly plastic sheeting and PVC wiring pipes. The best of the tents are furnished with simple woven mats and cheap foam pillows, but most tents are completely bare with just thin plastic boards for a base to sleep on.
The inhabitants supplement their daily food intake with fish, horseshoe crabs and shellfish, all caught and gathered from along the shoreline.

October 2016; the population of the tent community has dwindled dramatically, with most of the makeshift structures now left abandoned and in tatters.
