Probal Rashid: Climate Crisis in Bangladesh

Probal Rashid: Climate Crisis in Bangladesh
International Photography Grant 2020

Probal Rashid, a photographer who has documented pollution and Tuberculosis in Bangladesh, where he is based, has turned his lens on climate change as it continues to affect the most marginalized populations of the city for his ongoing work “Climate Crisis in Bangladesh.” Bangladesh, a city that regularly experiences tropical cyclones, river erosion, floods, landslides, and drought, is especially vulnerable to climate change, and sea levels rising can only mean the forced displacement of the most at-risk population.
