The Cham are diverse group of seafaring Muslim and Hindu communities from Southeast Asia. Historically, Cham territory included several kingdoms in what is today central and southern vietnamese defeats in the fifteenth and early nineteenth centuries, prompting some cham to take refuge on Hainan island in the South China Sea. Others took waterbourne flight to the Mekong Delta spanning Cambodia and Vietnam. In the 1970's, Cham were among the many persecuted groups during cambodia's murderous Khmer Rouge regime. Thousands fled as refugees to Malaysia and as far as the United States, France, Australia and Canada. These varied and repeated experiences of forced displacement have created communities that share common heritage but now live very different lives. This exhibition by photographer James Seabright, builds on research into these diverse communities undertaken by researchers from SGIA, at Durham University.
