Bangladesh is one of the developing countries in recent days, and it hits it’s annul GDP record (2017-2018). When a country growing economically, the industries, houses and mills everything is growing rapidly. When already many farming lands converted to mills and industries, it left a huge impact on traditional farmer’s lives who used make their living by only farming. In these circumstances the demand for the bricks is too high because of the growing industries, houses. Workers, who work in these brick factories are mostly brought from the northern parts of Bangladesh who used to do farming. Because of the shortage of farm able land these workers come to work in many brick factories. Though the demand is very high for bricks, factories are still producing bricks in a traditional way. Workers of these brick fields include men, women and children. These are internal migrated workers, and they come hoping to make more money than they used to make by farming in their villages. Mostly in every brick factory, the authorities compromise the safety and working conditions for the workers. They use child labour to reduce their production costs. Moreover these workers often get paid less (1-2 USD) a day to support themselves and their families.
These brick field workers stay in narrow slums beside the brick fields with their families. Most of the time all the family members seen in the brick field working as the wages are that low its almost impossible to support a family by one person’s earning. Workers of brick field, work for 12-16 hours a day in a very inappropriate working environment like wage slavers.
My photo story is about those people who live their life in these brick fields. How their everyday life goes and how their happiness depends on small things, form where they get the inspiration to live.
