The chaotic wiring poles of Dhaka, capital of Bangladesh. Messily repaired and overloaded with layers of cable for decades (the government has promised to phase them out by 2022) they’ve been captured for posterity as a metaphor for the country’s ‘entangled reality’ by local photographer Sounak Das.

I visit this park near my home to photograph blackbirds on cold mornings, often aiming to capture the “smoke rings” that form from their breath as they sing out. On this occasion, I arrived early on a frigid day and heard the cry of the blackbirds all around the boardwalk. This particular bird was very vociferous, singing long and hard. I looked to set it against the dark background of the forest, shooting to the east as the sun rose over the trees, backlighting the vapour.
