Taken in 2008 is this image and a wonderful clash of colours, as a woman in a red sari works in the lush green rice paddies near Srimongol, in North-East Bangladesh.
Seeing women work in the fields in rural Bangladesh wasn’t an prevalent as it is in neighbouring India. It turns out the women was recently windowed and said that now has little option but to now work in the rice fields now.
Mark Coughlan Photography and travel blog is finally live!
After six months of toying with doing this site it’s finally complete!
Thanks in large to producing children the last few years have been pretty static with minimal opportunity to travel. Now with two beautiful daughters in tow and growing rapidly I’m starting to get itchy feet. I’ve a few short term and long term plans that I plan to share with you on here.
This website is two parts – First and in the main my portfolio of work from projects I have worked on and images from various travels around the world in the last 10 years of so.
Secondly is this blog something I plan to update on a daily basis. As those that have been following my various websites and blogs over the past 10 years of so I’ve named the blog ‘A Shepherds Bush Man Eats From A Can’, a reincarnation of my old website and blog from the mid/late nineties!
I will blog about my own personal work in the past and future giving background info behind images and bodies of work I have produced. I’ll share old photos and video clips from trips in the past even from the good old backpacking days before digital SLR’s were born!
With this blog I’ll share with you all the work of other photographers I like and videos, clips, short films, documentaries I personally enjoy and recommend you check out.
