Everyday life in Daulatdia, Bangladesh's largest brothel. Doulida, Bangladesh. 01/01/2005. Charu, not her real name, lives in the Bangladesh's largest brothel - Daulatdia. I talked to her because I had interests about the sex-workers' lifestyle and also about 'sex-work' as a trade. Lots of photographers have worked in this 'apparently hated' community. One of them is Shahidul Alam who has also worked with these people as an activist on issues related to work and its relation to humanity from a specific political point of view. I have gone through most of the work that Shahidul has done over a substantial period of time. His work inspired me to take my own photographs on this subject. I went to Daulatdia brothel in January 2005. The brothel complex contains 300 houses and is home to more than 350 families. I tried my best to capture some of the moments of their everyday life, which have fun, rhythm, sorrows and agonies.
