Street life - Dhaka, Bangladesh 

Curiosity often brings me to less traveled places. In the vibrant chaos of remote locations I find engaged, heartfelt people -  making a living with very few means and resources. The mega cities all over the world may shine with their opulent skylines and slick shopping malls, but I mostly find my motives elsewhere. This series of photos is captured in the less fashionable quarters of Dhaka, Bangladesh, in October 2015. A city with an estimated 18-20 million people and an annual, explosive growth of 400.000 new citizens. People from the poor countryside, survivors of natural disasters such as floods and typhoons, drawn to the metropolis with a hope for a better life. People who have seen their farmlands become submerged and depleted by the rising rivers and effects of climate change. Living in the slums and streets of the capital seems to be the last resort, but often the only chance for survival. In a city where the dense and noisy traffic never stops - night or day - there is always a chance to earn a coin, to survive the day.
