stranger 7/100 abdul hoque

This young fisherman, Abdul Hoque catches small fishes and prawns by casting his net in shallow water area. He is very young, like 17-18 years old and earns his living by doing this. I met this guy today in Cox'sbazar, the longest beach on Earth. After talking to him for a while, I asked him to give a pose for an action portrait. Abdul Hoque was very happy to cast his net three times for me and all of them were superb!

 

Such a nice guy. A beautiful addition in my 100 strangers gallery.
