The Vessel and the Girl
The Vessel and the Girl, Bangladesh by Nargis.
Nargis is 13 years old, and makes and sells jewellery on the beach. She was the last of the girls to join the Surfing club, but has picked up on skating very quickly. She loves music, and always carries around a sound box with her while she is working.
An estimated 6.4 million children aged 5 to 17 are engaged in child labour (ILO) in Bangladesh, and only three in ten girls from low-income families will complete secondary school. In this photograph, Nargis captured the beautiful nature of her home allowing viewers to catch a glimpse of her world.
