Dhaka Portraits, Bangladesh 2019
Information
Along with the images from the dockyard I shot these portraits in the foundry. It was one of the most dangerous work environments I've ever seen and everyone was working barefoot or in sandals. The workers said they found it easier to work
like that. What really struck me was the amount of young children working there. The heat, smoke and molten metal isn't the best place for youngster to be growing up in. They where working with other family members and had to in order to earn enough money for the families to support themselves. School was too expensive. Poverty is the root cause of the problem here.
