TITLE: "Haunting Portraits"
This series is called “Haunting Portraits” from various portraits of the journey to Bangladesh in 2020. The people are laborers who work either at the port or in the shipyards of Dhaka. The work is hard and demanding. The conditions are hot and often dangerous. So are the faces of the people; all tell a different story. All ages work together.
AUTHOR: Josef Buergi (Switzerland)
Born in 1965 in Berne, Switzerland, Joe Buergi started around 2000 with photography. He studied Engineering and works for the public sector. As a pure autodidact he developed the knowledge by himself, but also studying the masters. His music photography, together with travel, have become two of his life’s passions. His photography focuses on culture, landscapes and wildlife; images which reflect a spatial and temporal journey through life. He seeks the quite moments and the light in whatever context he finds himself. He is an eclectic photographer who enjoys diversity in his imagery. Hence his images range from travel to landscapes and portraits. He believes that photography can capture those inimitable moments and empower us to make a positive change in our world.
