More Information»

Hkun Li won the 3rd place for Best Photo Story of the Year at the 6th annual Yangon Photo Festival for his series “Life on the Frontline”. This series, shot in Kachin State, Myanmar, is an exploration of the current civil war and refugee crisis through the eyes of a Kachin youth. This award, presented by Aung San Suu Kyi, includes a full scholarship for a workshop at the upcoming Arles Photo Festival.
Hkun Li began shooting in 2011 when DAA founder Ryan Libre was invited by the Kachin Independence Organization to teach a weeklong course on documentary photography. Inspired by his passion for visual storytelling, Documentary Arts Asia awarded Hkun Li a micro grant of $100 USD to start his project. Hkun Li is currently a teacher at DAA’s satellite center in Kachin State.

Local communities in the river basin, particularly those downriver, rely on fish as their major source of protein. Yet Mekong fisheries are at risk of depletion due to rapid industrialization and an expanding human population. Proposed mega infrastructure projects such as hydroelectric dams may alter annual cycles of flooding and fish migration in the river and its tributaries.
