A makeshift fish market beside the Dhaka-Chattogram highway hampers vehicular movement at Jatrabari in the capital. The market remains open from 4:00am to 9:00am every day. Because of this market, it takes around two-three hours to reach Sayedabad or Gulistan from Kanchpur, a journey that usually takes half an hour. The photo was taken around 5:30am yesterday.

Fatema, a homemaker from Khulna’s Dumuria upazila, fishes in the Salta river during low tide as her four-year-old son Rakibul looks on. The low-income families in the area are dependent on small fish from the river as they cannot afford to buy fish from markets. The photo was taken on Thursday.
