This shot sadly remember me about Auschwitz trains... Unfortunately this is a very sad reality. Many people still live and work in "developing" countries in conditions similar to Nazi camps. Only barbed wire and gas chambers are missing here. Maybe you think how a detention camp can exist without barbed wire? Barbed wire is just replaced with visa emigration policies and border control posts. The beautiful "civilized" world forget-ed about labor camps. Those are only in black and white pictures. But in our days more than 75% humans "enjoy" a life in black and white. Last month i traveled with a very nice train in Austria and there was more ticket checkers than passengers. The opulent western countries afford to waste huge amount of resources on luxury and the rest of world is struggling to survive. They don`t finish theirs black&white lives in gas-chambers but they die by common diseases like tuberculosis because they can`t afford to pay for a minimal healthcare. Maybe next time when you will enjoy to buy a fine quality T-shirt with 5$ from supermarket you may think about those people who work for miserable wages in Auschwitz-like factories in "developing" world....
Really nice picture, Junaid. The black and white totally reflect the candid eyes of this little kid. Great work, nice process, I totally love it!
love it the hands and the way she holds the train and the bag and the look in the eye of the boy. nice
Nice to see this pic, I always keep my eyes in this Section on NG website and i was hoping that some day i will see our countries pics also. So that day is came true.
Congrats Mr. junaid.
Initially I thought that this was a photo of soldiers in khaki.
It must be the dilapidated carriage that makes it look like the commuters are off to battle the day.
তবে একটা জিনিসের জন্য খারাপ লাগতেসে। Photo of the day হিসেবে আমাদের বাংলাদেশের, আমাদের দেশের একজন ফটোগ্রাফারের ছবি নির্বাচিত হয়েছে; কিন্তু সেটা আমাদের দেশের একটি ঋণাত্মক প্রেক্ষাপটের উপর।
@Khasrul Islam do u really think that it is better than delhi or kolkatta or mumbai dont even think about it for the given growth witnessed by these cities and the people migrating we are managing it in the best possible way and in no way dhaka or daka as u people say can be compared with bombay or delhi
@J S i thought that too may be because initially we saw the cloth and mistake it for soldiers.
