Off the West Bengali coast of India lies Ghoramora Island, whose shores are rapidly eroding away due to the effects of global warming.  More than 50% of the island has disappeared since the 1980s and the remaining population is saving up to relocate. Photographer Dae Sung Lee captured the island and the farmers and fisherman who still live there in this gorgeous photo series.
