 A Photoreportage of Phuket's Chao Lay or Sea Gypsies

By Nakarin Banjerdjin

     

Child's ple knows no cultural boundaries.

The salt of the earth, her rumbling laughter practically vibrates these very pages.

A devoted sister brings scavenged treasures for her brother before consoling the baby.


Gathering daily at dusk to bob and rest in the quiet waters of Rawaii beach, longtail boat ooze character from every crack, scratch and bump

A typical Chao Lay settlement on Rawai Beach, Phuket


A devoted sister brings scavenged treasures for her brother before consoling the baby.

Little rascals, dripping with personality, eyeball the camera.


Central to the lives of all the Chao Lay people is the sea. It plays an integral role in trade, food and tradition.
