1. St. Kitts and Nevis DWC Primary School Student

    My first day at the Dr. William Connor Primary School, and I am confronted with the reality that students do not have common classroom objects, like pencils and paper, textbooks, or even garbage cans for each room. 

  2. Bangladesh Recreation

    Creativity is a must for those in a country with so little to distract, and everywhere there is enjoyment - if one only looks for it...

  3. Bangladesh Cooling off

    Water buffalo wade in green waters getting some relief from the sweltering Bengali sun.

  4. Bangladesh Auto Shop

    Little gets thrown out in Bangladesh, little is too old.  Things are in a constant process of renewal and reuse, and certainly automobiles are one of the things most likely to see multiple lives.

  5. Bangladesh The bus stop

    Getting around required the bus, and getting on the bus required dealing with this...

  6. Bangladesh On The Bus

    Bideshis, or foreigners, were few and far between in B-desh.  Being one, was like being a celebrity, or a freak, depending on how you looked at it, or felt.  The bus was a microcosm of that.  When you got on the bus, you were trapped, locked in by the incessant stares.  If a picture can capture what it felt like, this was it.

  7. Bangladesh Infrastructure

    There isn't much planning or structure in this chaotic country, and things are often taken care of in the simplest, shoestring manner possible.  If it works, it works, and it will stay that way until it no longer does.

  8. Bangladesh By water

    Transportation in Bangladesh was never easy, and often seemingly set back 100 years (or more).  The seasons and endless water did not make it any easier.  There were boats, sure, but as in this picture, it shows that was not necessarily a better solution.  

  9. Bangladesh Life

    No matter how hard things were in Bangladesh, the kids were always a source of joy.  Their unending happiness and laughter were always a way of creating perspective.

  10. Bangladesh Ox Pulled Cart

    Things need to be moved, and in Bangladesh there isn't always a truck available, and though a bit slower, an ox can do the job.
