Bangladesh 19 May 2013 02:30
British photojournalist Bradley Secker journeys through Bangladesh, the world’s most densely populated country. Bangladesh hosts a staggering 161 million packed into an area that is 147, 570km sq. Along the way, Secker encounters laborers, farmers, craftsmen, rickshaw pullers, tribesmen, garment workers, roadside doctors, and other regular people, most of whom provide him with a warm and friendly welcome. Unfortunately, as the majority of Bangladesh’s land is less than 2 meters above sea level, it is under increasing threat of environmental disasters. This threat is a problematic added stress to a country that is already dealing with a fractured economy.
