The Urban Poor of Dhaka City

There is a new photoset up on my Flickr page called “The Urban Poor of Dhaka City”. These were photos I took about a block from where I live. There is this sidewalk thats been basically turned into a shanty town or slum.

I once had a friend in college who would scoff at my focus on Third World Poverty. “There are homeless in Toronto you know!” he would tell me (Toronto being my hometown). I would just shake my head and tell him he doesn’t understand. Yes, there is homeless in the developed world – but you can’t even begin to compare the two.

Maybe if he saw this in person he’d understand better.

Hungry, Homeless, Young, and Poor

These homeless don’t have the luxury of a soup kitchen.
