Bajau people of Malaysia are refugees banned from living on land
- Canadian photographer Mark Lehn captured these striking images of the Bajau Laut off the coast of Sabah, Borneo
- Originally from the Sulu Archipelago in the Philippines, the nomadic tribe are stateless and depend on the water
- Dwindling trade and food sources means an increasing number of them are moving to the mainland for work
