Traditional wooden boats and life

Hundreds of wooden boats are arranged in flower shapes, ready to carry workers from the outskirts to their jobs in the center of the city. The enormous groups of boats in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka, which is the third most densely populated city in the world, home to 17 million people. The pictures were taken in the Sadarghat area, on the banks of the Buriganga river, which is used as a route into Dhaka city for millions of workers. The boats were clustered in groups, with between 20 and 200 vessels in each of the groups.
