|Bangla Bricks: Making and Unmaking Monsoon Grounds
This photo-essay traces the life course of Bangladesh bricks to explore how the monsoon is enmeshed within built environments. It is based on ethnographic observations of brick making in Bangladesh, a terrain within which the monsoon is deeply implicated. Following the cycle of the brick from sediment to clay, from clay to brick and from brick to sediment reveals entanglements of weather, geology and human energies. The mobile materiality of the monsoon is entwined within the very building blocks of Bangladesh’s cities and the infrastructures on which they depend.
