Team Chittagong, 2010-2013 text

 

< Back to project

Since 2010, I have visited some of the poorest districts, where residents come mainly from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Al Hamriyah, Al Sanayah or Industrial part of Wadi Al Kabir district, are the places I have ventured into many times with my camera. A series of „Team Chittagong” is the story of the poorest workers from Bangladesh and working for the lowest rates. These people also usually perform the worst work, which is also most dangerous to their health and life. I have tried to photograph them in their natural environment, which is the street where they meet in their non-working days. I photographed mostly in the evening or at night-  because of the hot climate, the streets are lively only after sunset.
