This picture was shot in Cambodia, on the Tonle Sap lake. Thousands of fishermen families live on the lake, on floating homes. They have a floating school, floating supermarkets, etc... They are poor and survive only thanks to their fishing and the government help. Life is tough, from a yound age, as you can see with this little girl and her grandmother.
