Fixer in Mae Sot

Hi All,

I am looking for fixer in Mae Sot.
I will be there on 8th of March.
I would like to do a photo reportage about refugees living there – refugee camp, Mae Tao clinic, Garbage dump.

Thanks in advance.

Just a heads up in case you are not aware, but most of the Karen Refugee’s are located in camps along the border with Myanmar not in Mae Sot.Mae La is the biggest which is about 60km outside of Mae Sot and some others like No Pu are over 4hrs away.

i’ve been Mae la camp and mae tao clinic 2years ago…before shooting in kind of refugee camp you have to get the permission at UNHCR..but very easy to get there from Ma sot by red truck~ good luck~

I was with UNHCR on a photo mission so can’t offer too much in the way of contacts. Anyway, I’m really not sure if they would be the ones to contact as they usually only grant access to their own staff / contract photogs etc. I suggest trying to find some Karen in Mae Sot, explain what it is you intend to do and see if they can get you in. It’s also standard to get approval from the camp leaders before they will let you in so maybe schedule a few waiting days for that.There maybe other ways of getting in with a fixer or something,but i’m really not sure on that front.Best of luck.
