River Gypsies of Bangladesh

4,246

Published on

The waterways of Bangladesh are home to nearly 800,000 “river gypsies” or bedey (as they are known locally) that navigate along Bangladesh’s network of over 700 rivers and canals on their hand-constructed bamboo houseboats. This photo documentary depicts the lives of the families I met near Savar, Bangladesh.
