A Bangladeshi at work in the Chittagong ship breaking yard, one of the biggest yard in the world. Ship breaking is a big industry in Bangladesh although the conditions of the workers are poor because enforcement and compliance to the laws that protect them are practically nonexistent.

Location: Chittagong, Bangladesh
