I am a fine art photographer based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. For the past couple of months I have travelled to different streets in Bangladesh, India and Nepal. I love to explore narrow streets and back alleys in a city.

This love grew when I was traveling in Varanasi, India. The whole city is full of really narrow streets, lanes and alleys. It was incredible to see how happening and lively the space can be. It's like stories unfolding in every corner in those places. You will often find people doing everyday chores, chatting with other people, or just taking a break and having tea, or maybe someone is just sitting on his/her doorstep at the end of the day. For me these places are full of colors, emotions, stories, and the unique essence of local lifestyle which I don’t find in the main city streets. It’s about seeing life happening rather than getting restrained in those narrow streets.

Clean, bright whites and the bluish tones of the street and the guy's clothing: really beautiful capture.

Asian Bulls seem so much laid back than the Spanish breed - truly must be due to the way they are treated
