About the Photograph:
“The photo is from Bangladesh. It’s one of the oldest weight lifting gyms in Old Dhaka near Sodhorghat, the port. A lot of the guys that work out there are trying to become Mr. Bangladesh. A quick way out of one of the poorest parts of an incredibly poor city in an incredibly poor country.”
