Jaflong, a hill-station in Bangladesh’s Sylhet district, was once immensely popular among tourists for its tea gardens and vast swathes of rainforest. Sharing its border with Meghalaya, Jaflong also attracts a large number of workers to its innumerable stone quarries. These poorly paid workers live the life of nomads, setting up a home wherever work takes them.
What once used to be a scenic honeymoon spot for newly wed couples to frequent is now reduced to rubbles of stones and lorries transporing them in and out. These immigrant labours plucked out of these lands in search for better jobs are made to survive in these harsh conditions.
And the temporary living spaces; homes in Jaflong are the subject of this photo essay.
Images of landscape, people, and the little boy are attached to the "Vision Board" below. The project was shot in 2016.
