Bricks are the main building blocks for much of Bangladesh since the country lies in a flood plain rich with soil ideal for brick making. These bricks produced through kilns produce air pollution in Dhaka. Some 2,000 brickworks operate illegally for short periods, often five months a year since Bangladesh is often wet due to monsoon rains. Workers are hired through middlemen who collects much of their wages. Family members of these help out through intense summers for at least 13 hours a day. Child labor is practiced, unnoticed much of the West.
Miguel Candela (Spain, 1985), specializing in the human drama of life, is restless in his intentions to satisfy his personal requirements in capturing still images, the colour and reactions of people, places & events. Shows the public in images, the diversity of humanity from their way of life, practices, homes, beliefs, traditions, relations, costumes, and reactions to issues or general situations of the time. To be a photographer helped him to perceive the world not as how it is but the way is lived, without boundaries to enable him to comprehend his surroundings, to respect other cultures and their ways of thinking. Photography opened him into news horizons and value our present as a historical event. He sees his works as an affirmation that "Every person has his or her individual unique history, every individual has an intriguing story to tell."
