A topless man was sitting inside a small shop in Rangpur. He wore glasses, a rarity in Bangladesh. He wore glasses that were as thick as the bottom of a milk bottle and seemed to have a strong intensity. When I pointed the camera at him, he stopped working and smiled at me.

It's my personal opinion that East Asian people seem to have a higher rate of short-sightedness. It may have something to do with genetic differences. I'm not sure what's causing it, but it's a fact that more Japanese people are nearsighted than Westerners. That's why the image of Japanese people used to be one of hanging eyes, glasses, and a camera hanging around their necks. I think the Japanese in the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's" was also like that.
