Debiganj, Bangladesh

Photograph by Luke Duggleby, Redux

A vendor in Debiganj, Rangpur, Bangladesh, sits among baskets of produce in an open-air market. Until July 2015, Debiganj was an enclave: territory that is literally surrounded by a foreign country and essentially cut off from its homeland. The situation, which persisted for decades, meant that residents had difficulty getting basic supplies and no access to public works. This market, according to photographer Luke Duggleby, "stays open well into the night, when locals from all over the countryside, inside and out of the enclaves, come to buy essentials."
