This is a series of photographs which deals with the construction works around Dhaka city. In 2011 I took few photographs of a road extension work near my house, which was basically part of a huge flyover project. There were so many things happening there and it was happening fast. I saw the place changing day after day and the place attracted me more. So I start traveling around Dhaka to find more construction.
There are thousands of small and big construction works going on around Dhaka city, few commercial and non-commercial and some are done by the government and it is changing our city day by day. Even 3/4 years ago places like Mirpur DOHS were nothing more than an empty land full of grass now it has become a huge housing society. It is interesting. Simple things like a dredging pipe spilling sand or a half sliced building beside a road, has a mysterious benign presences which we don’t notice very often.
