Photography Documentary on Social Issues Orang Seletar Malaysia

Loh Yoke Ling, Yu Wei Koo, Mohd. Nor Shahizan Ali, Sarina Yusuf


Orang Seletar’s home neighbourhood, Kampung Sungai Temon is in Iskandar Puteri’s development zone, although many of them live in abject poverty. The expansion of towns has resulted in brackish water, making it difficult for fish and shellfish to survive. Plastic bottles and trash have accumulated in mangroves and marshes, posing a threat to the livelihood of orang Seletar. The daily routine of Orang Seletar Settlement is observed through documentary photography. Based on the findings of the ethnography, the social difficulties in this settlement may be grouped into four primary categories: children’s education, construction consequences, unfavourable living conditions, and livelihood challenges.
