When the Asian tsunami hit southern Thailand in 2004, the sea that had sustained the region for generations – the Andaman – rose up, destroying families and killing thousands. Three-and-a-half years later, a team of journalists set out for the seaside province of Phang-nga to document the lives and culture of people living by the Andaman. They found a people marked – but not defined – by disaster, a people who have taken on challenges and risen above them.
