Photographer's Note

Going by boat through the Ganges delta in southern Bangladesh, I had to rent a small cabin since the deck where I wanted to put my sleepingbag was already packed when I arrived. Throughout the evening we stopped at small towns to take on even more passengers, most of them climbing onto the very top of the boat. As I opened a wooden shutter in my cabin in the morning, this is what I saw. All through the night these people had been packed on the roof of the boat, most of them standing because there was no place to lie down.
This picture from 1972 was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
