Photograph by Vitùc

From the lathered-up chins in barber shops to the hands tearing apart soft roti prata breads, this video zooms in on snippets of life across Bangladesh. 

Vituc, the videographer, documented these scenes during a trip to the country using a Sony A7s2 with a 16-35mm f4 and 35mm f.2.8mm lenses. 

"In Bangladesh, especially in the chars of Gaibandha, I rediscovered all the things I thought we had lost: the joy of life, the innocence, the simplicity, the human warmth, the authenticity, peace, space and freedom…"
