Bangladeshi Girl

This was taken in a small village near Rangpur. As soon as I saw this girl, I found her eyes very striking. She reminded me of Steve McCurry's famous Afghan Girl. Isolating her was no mean feat, as she was surrounded by about forty other excited kids. The people in Bangladesh are incredibly warm and friendly. They are eager for you to take their photographs. If you get the chance, go there.
