Burning the Fields, Mae Sot

A young Burmese migrant worker helps set fire to fields outside Mae Sot, Thailand, during the burning season. The burning is done by farmers to get rid of waste and fertilise the soil. Burmese make up a large proportion of the town's population though exact figures are elusive as many of the migrant workers are illegal. Part of my Borderlands project, a long term documentary project looks at life around Mae Sot. 2013
