Photographer's Note

Canning, a place in West Bengal bordering the Sunderbans - where there exists a large populace of Royal Bengal Tigers.

This photograph is taken on the banks of river Matla that passes by this fishing village. The river is both a source of livelihood and a threat to the lives of the fisher folks, for it eats into their land on a regular basis, in the process, sometimes even their homes. Growing up here isn't easy when you constantly have to search for newer shelter every time the river erodes your home.
