Lost In Waves

Effects of Climate Change are very visual in a country like Bangladesh. In 2018, a rapid river erosion happened around the areas beside the Padma River. Lots of people lost their homes and land. This rapid river erosion made many climate refugees and left a straight threat to our  near future.

This documentation is about the people of Naria, Shariatpur; Bangladesh. Through my photographs I tried to show the pain and the traumatic experiences of the people who witnessed this flint-heated occurrence of nature.
