Seletar: Sea People of Johor

Jefree Salim is a self-taught photographer and a fisherman from the Orang Seletar village of Kampung Sungai Temon, Johor Bahru. His photographic work revolves around the lives of the Orang Seletar, capturing the moments of his people as they work, swim, and play in the sea and what remains of the mangroves at the coast of Johor. We speak to Jefree about his current exhibition featuring 11 of his best photography works and a video installation, as well as an art installation by Gerimis, which explore the histories, stories, and cosmologies of the Orang Seletar.
