In 2008 I had the extraordinary opportunity to visit dozens of villages across the vast and diverse nation of Bangladesh while interning for an economic research organization, Unnayan Onneshan. More than a decade later I uncovered the photos I had taken during this time and began to edit them. For me this was a special time of personal growth and intellectual awakening. But as I looked back at the photos I realized it was a special time for Bangladesh as well. Like the cover photo suggests, Bangladesh is pulsing with texture, color, vibrance, and life.
