Rickshaw Wallah Wearing A Plastic Bag

Man wearing plastic bag

The man wore the plastic bag to avoid the rain

Shot in the city of Dhaka, Bangladesh.

It was the rainy season and it rained every day during staying. When it started to rain, I just took shelter from rain somewhere in the streets. Yet it was more complex for rickshaw wallah. They couldn't stop working even if it started to rain suddenly. For all that, it was a distant idea to pedal while putting an umbrella up.

What the man in this photo did was one of the solutions. He was a rickshaw wallah and wore a plastic bag on the head to avoid getting his hair wet.
