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.
Breakfast at Tiffany's is a 1961 American romantic comedy film directed by Blake Edwards, written by George Axelrod, adapted from Truman Capote's 1958 novella of the same name, and stars Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, a naïve, eccentric café society girl who falls in love with a struggling writer (George Peppard). It also featured Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam, and Mickey Rooney in supporting roles. The film was a critical and commercial success.
