This book of 45 pages, vividly illustrates through its 9 evocative essays, the people, places and problems of modern Bangladesh. The PDF book contains additionally 117 color and black and white images, arranged in 125 pages.
The photo essays have a documentary and cognitive nature and are based upon one of my travel projects made in May 2013 to Bangladesh. This book provides an overview of the places I consider most interesting and my general impressions. I have included some statistics and quotes from verified sources, but the essays are not the result of detailed research and do not attempt to provide any solutions to the country’s fundamental problems that I observed, or occasionally comment upon, such as child labour, environment pollution and other issues.
The final paragraph of each essay is written with the photographer in mind; it highlights some of the techniques, methods and various approaches used to capture the photographs accompanying the essays. I hope by doing so, to provide basic but useful information to other photo enthusiasts, who may find themselves taking photographs under similar conditions in Bangladesh. It is not intended as a manual, but as an aide memoir, therefore I have not burdened the reader with detailed technical data.
However, basic EXIF information is provided alongside each picture, which photo enthusiasts may find useful. This book also provides a section of useful information about Bangladesh, It is aimed at travellers and professional photographers who plan to visited Bangladesh; it provides web addresses, names and contact details of guides and other helpful people.
