Over the past three years photographer Vlad Sokhin has seen graves sink into the sea and cultures endangered as villages and islands become flooded by high tides.
It's what happens when you document the end of someone's world.
For the past three years Sokhin has been travelling the pacific, photographing Pacific Ocean communities facing the reality of climate change.
These pictures are part of a piece called Warm Waters -- a long-term, ongoing photography project documenting how man made global warming is an immediate problem for some of the world's smallest nations and countries.
Sokhin first started to think about the effects of climate change while on assignment in Papua New Guinea, where he visited a region known as Manus Island.
He had worked on several assignments about deforestation and climate change, but it was a small island off Manus -- half eroded by the rising tide -- that prompted him to have a closer look at other pacific communities.
From there he went to the Marhshall Islands and Kiribati, where wading your way from A to B has become the norm.
While in Kiribati, he met a man who made a point of parking his car on an elevated spot as the tide began to rise.
"And then like an hour later this car is already parked on an Island," Sokhin said.
"You see kids swimming to school, people using flotation devices to get through their houses to get to the main road.
"Or in the Marshall Islands -- it's already famous amongst photographers who go there -- this cemetery near Majuro that's slowly, slowly going underwater. When I was there in 2014 I saw the first row of the graves already destroyed."
His freelance work with NGOs, including UNICEF and the UN, allows him to travel and his work is not exclusive to global warming.
But climate change has many facets, and Sokhin documents as much as he can -- from deforestation to cyclones, as well as the creation physical and cultural refugees.
"It's not only sea-level rise -- a lot of photographers work on sea-level rise around the world -- it's different things. It's the increase in cyclones, in the past couple of years we have had category five cyclones in Fiji and Vanuatu, and then category four like we have had this year," he said.
The effect on cultures as people are forced to migrate is also something he documents.
"People leaving their islands -- it's not a big thing yet, but it's going to be," he said.
"When we talk about these people who move from one place to the other in the pacific -- the people of Kiribati buying land in Fiji... how will they be accepted?
"We don't know whats going to happen."
Sokhin is planning to travel to Alaska to photograph how other island communities are coping.
"I am not trying to change anything. It's too late," he said.
"I don't see any role, I don't have any role -- I just wanted to document it and show it to people. It's something that I am personally interested in. I guess that's it, I don't play like 'oh, I'm a messenger' or anything.
"Photography is what I do and I think this issue is important and its already happening in these fragile communities of the pacific, or in Bangladesh, Greenland, Alaska. But we still underestimate the scale of this. And that's the goal, to show the scale of this in the pacific."
