Four Years After Hurricane Aila: Photographs from Dacope

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Dacope in the Southwestern region of Khulna, Bangladesh,  is the bordering district to the Sunderbans, the largest natural mangrove forest in the world.

Eerily devoid of trees along the district’s coast, Dacope, which is home to hundreds of thousands of people, became the site of a multiple tragedy in 2009- Hurricane Aila went on a rampage along Dacope’s coasts, bulldozing everything in its midst.

Four years later, I had the chance to speak with survivors about their experience, and learn about how problems affect them on the ground. Here are some pictures from August 2013, taken with my phone, which document the beautiful landscape and people, paying attention to the vast issues alongside it.
