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.”

Child prostitution in Bangladesh
Shiho Fukada’s ability to immerse herself in the stories she photographs is launching her career. It’s a far cry from the Tokyo businesswoman her father thought she would become. It’s difficult to imagine how she had the access to make these images of young girls who work as prostitutes in Bangladesh.
