Heavy traffic, extremely high population density and chaos are all a part of the identity of Bangladesh. How to translate this look to a photograph? The pinhole lens was all that I needed to capture this crazy dynamism.
Visiting Bangladesh is like traveling several decades back in time. Moreover, the moment you set a foot in this country you are presented with a definition of chaos. Order and silence temporarily lose their meaning. The eye that looks and experiences this strike of visual intensity reaches the paradise of dynamism in a nick of time. And surprisingly even this chaos somehow was aesthetically pleasing.
No effect has been added to the pictures below; playing with the shutter speed in all of the cases, only a slight adjustment of the levels has been made in the post editing. The dust, the imperfections, and the blur come straight from the camera as a result of the pinhole effect. This connection between digital and back-to-the-basics style gives the photos a vintage look and crazy energy with which Bangladesh welcomes the astonished visitors.
These images has been taken around Bangladesh; concretely in Panchagarh, Dinajpur, Jaipurhat and Dhaka.
