Rohingya Refugees: Stateless in Southeast Asia
The Bangladeshi photographer Saiful Huq Omi has spent six years photographing Rohingya Muslims who fled persecution in Myanmar only to find themselves stateless. When he visited refugees in Bangladesh, where more than 200,000 Rohingya now live, he heard stories of torture, rape and murder as well as those about a lack of basic freedoms. While few other people in the world were interested in the plight of these stateless refugees at the time, he felt compelled to focus on them. For Mr. Huq it was personal.
