I spent six weeks in Dhaka, Bangladesh in early 2014. Whilst studying at Pathshala South Asian Media Academy I followed two dancers with Shadhona Cultural Circle. Shammy + Hanif were photographed and filmed during their training, rehearsals, performances and daily lives, as well as in posed situations.
