September/October 2016

Elaine's photographs documented the lives of children and their nursery teachers in refugee camps on the Thai side of Thailand's border with Myanmar, as well as various events, weddings and village life in and around the camps and in rural villages near the border town of Mae Sot.

Nine refugee camps house around 120,000 refugees. Despite the recent change in government, discrimination still exists in Myanmar making it dangerous for many of those members of minority ethnic groups to return. Much of their homeland is still heavily landmined and villages burnt down.
