1st Place: Living in the Transition by Shunta Kimura
I photographed these pictures in Gabura Union, Bangladesh between the beginning of October and late November 2021.
Gabura Union is located on the southwestern coast of Bangladesh. It is one of the most vulnerable areas to the impacts of climate change, and many residents often suffer from its effects. These include river erosion, landslides, rising salinity levels in fresh water sources and collapsing infrastructure, caused by the tropical cyclones that occur frequently.
The purpose of this photo essay is to capture and communicate the situation for people living quietly in this transition, impacted by climate change.
