«STATELESS UNTOUCHABLE»
AJ GHANI /
FRITT ORD FOUNDATION STUDENT GRANT

On the morning of April 25th 2015, Nepal was shaken by an earthquake of magnitude 7.9 in Richter scale causing widespread devastation and huge losses of lives, property and infrastructure, as well as affected livelihoods. In Nepal, the possession of a citizenship certificate is significantly related to caste and gender. Members of the Dalit community often face discrimination by government officials which prevents them from not only acquiring one, but also from attempting at all. ‘Dalit’, which means ‘oppressed’, is the self-chosen political name of the caste formerly considered ‘untouchable’. Dalits usually live in separate settlements, often unsafe locations prone to landslides, away from the dominant caste habitations and other castes take elaborate precautions to prevent any form of contact with them. They are denied entry into temples and are not served food or water with others in social gatherings like festivals or weddings.

«THE PRIZE OF HAPPINESS»
YAN CONG /

Commercially arranged marriage between Chinese men and Cambodian women is not uncommon in a village called Huanggang in south China. In the past three years, more than 2,000 Chinese men married Cambodian women in the province of Jiangxi, where Huanggang Village is located. Zou Zhizai married Buntha Chreng (who is known as “Bai” among her Chinese families) in November 2013, after they were introduced by a broker. The couple soon had a baby son. Not having much money to support the family, Zou moved with Bai and their newborn son to coastal city Quanzhou. As Zou struggles to work as a security guard to provide for the family, Bai sometimes feels lonely and homesick having to take care of the baby by herself and being far away from her family in Cambodia. This project follows Zou and Bai, as they navigate their life together after the marriage.

«ONLY BECAUSE THEY ARE WOMEN»
Women victims of acid attacks

FARZANA HOSSEN / FREELANCE

According to Acid Survivors Foundation (ASF) in Bangladesh, from 1999 to 2011 there were 1,084 reported cases of acid assaults against women. Most of these attacks were marriage related, or lovers spurned, and far too often women are blamed for family breakups and divorce. Worse still, is the fact that both society and state have often turned a blind eye to the situation.

Violence against women is an ongoing issue that has been addressed by many artists, but none with the sobering directness and honesty that are shown through Hossen’s body of work. Her bravery and sensitivity in the portrayal of these women are admirable, and the trust she has established with them comes across in her images. Upon first viewing the photographs, one is almost affronted by the horror, but those immediate responses are soon overtaken by an unbelievable sadness and at the same time, the courage and warmth displayed between the subjects and the photographer. Hossen wrote:
