I have always wanted to shoot the streets of Dhaka, particularly the streets of the old town on a rainy day. The streets of Dhaka during the monsoon season can be difficult to move around and travel. But I wanted to focus more on the beauty, colors, and how rain makes the streets so atmospheric.
I have roamed around in those streets so many times but this was the first time I got to experience how these streets look during a heavy downpour. It was interesting to see even in heavy rainfall nothing really stops much and people just keep doing their works. With this series, I wanted to capture those moments, motion, and the atmosphere.
