My work Floating Future is positioned between fact and fiction. Recently, Vietnam has been ranked among the top five countries most affected by climate change. The work focuses in particular on the impacts of climate change on the Mekong Delta, which extends over Southern Vietnam. Because of climate change it is facing the impact of land subsidence. I have travelled to Vietnam and taken photographs of people in Can Tho City on their boats transporting agricultural goods and seafood from the Mekong Delta to the rest of Vietnam, but seemingly unaware of the impact of climate change on their environment.
