River Taxis

Baz R Bule photographed river taxis on the busiest river in Bangladesh and realised that no one other than you is bothered that you might die.

The first thing you realise when you’re on a river taxi on the Buriganga is that no one other than you is bothered that you might die. Crossing the busiest river in Bangladesh, in a tiny paddle boat, with passing oil tankers is just an everyday life thing for the people of Dhaka.

It’s this everyday life thing that I love so much about street photography. And the fixed lens on my X100f means I can’t help but get closer to it. It usually means I end up talking to people. And that often leads to me doing the things that they do every day.
