Inside the Secret Ship Breaking Yards in Chittagong

It's a photographer's dream to get inside a ship breaking yard in Chittagong, Bangladesh. And really difficult. After seeing Sebastian Salgado's Workers photos I had been anxious to get into here. All the stars aligned and we were able to get in. My then 6 year old daughter was declared first American child to see this spectacular place. I am blown away at how in just 3 months a enormous ship is completely taken down for recycled scrap metal.
