Across the world, people are staying home and that includes National Geographic photographers. @natgeo asked their photographers to share their thoughts on the worlds they see inside—and just outside—their windows. Link in bio. Photos by @ismailferdous | Yesterday my 82-year-old neighbor, Barbara, asked me to help set up a Zoom call on her iPad for her pilates class. She has been taking these classes with the same instructor for over three decades, and this was the first time Barbara had to participate remotely from her Manhattan apartment. Needing weights, she improvised with cans of beans. #newnormal #coronavirus #Covid19 #NewYork #Pilates

// This picture is an important picture of this decade // photo by @ismailferdous Amena, one of the victims of Rana Plaza factory collapse. In Rana Plaza factory collapse more than 1100 people were killed and few thousands people were injured. It is considered as one of the deadliest industrial disasters in the history. Amena was both lucky because she could get out from there alive, and at the same time she was unlucky because the physical and mental trauma caused by the horrible experience changed her forever. In 2015 she told me, “ I decided to commit suicide by hanging.. what is the point of living if I can’t do anything for my only child?” #ranaplaza #pictureofthedecade @afterranaplaza

Swipe ↔️ Photo by Ismail Ferdous | @ismailferdous. June 2019, On a summer afternoon in Quirpon Island. After two days of driving, me and my colleague reached the northernmost tip of Newfoundland, seven cups of coffee, three bags of Beef Jerkey and one Stop with hard braking because a moose family grazed right next to the road. And now we know...The Rock, the name the Newfies gave to their island, is pretty accurate. A lot of rough rocks, surrounded by rough sea. In between are fjords, glacial valleys, lakes, and lots of wilderness. Some 500,000 people live in Newfoundland on an area that is slightly larger than Italy. Most live in the capital St. John's or along the coast because the interior is hardly habitable. We stand in the harbor of Quirpon and the wind whips us in the face. It's ten degrees Celsius , the fog has just cleared. That's how the summer looks like, in Newfoundland. #canada

Photo by Ismail Ferdous @ismailferdous | “The Great Land Swap” Four years after India and Bangladesh exchanged exclaves to simplify the world's most complex border, many who chose to move rather than to change their citizenship find that their prospects are not what they'd hoped. These incongruous plots of land within the borders of another nation's territory, known geographically as exclaves (or enclaves) and locally as chhitmahals, had been home to approximately 53,000 people, according to a 2011 Indian census—38,000 Indians in the exclaves of Bangladesh and 15,000 Bangladeshis in the exclaves in India. (An easy, if overly simplistic, explanation is that enclave is to exclave as immigrant is to emigrant: The chhitmahals of India and Bangladesh were both enclave and exclave, in the same way that an immigrant to one country is also an emigrant from another. But also: An exclave is a bit of a country split from its motherland by one or more countries, such as Kaliningrad, Russia, which is separated from Russia by Poland and Lithuania, while an enclave is a territory wholly embedded within another. Only three "true" enclaved nations exist in the world: Lesotho, Vatican City, and San Marino.)#borders #exclaves #enclaves #india #bangladesh .

⬅️ Swipe ➡️ Photo by Ismail Ferdous @ismailferdous | 26th October 2016 fire raged in the Calais migrant camp (la jungle- Calais) during its demolition. French officials ordered the dismantling of the camp's tents and makeshift structures. More than 6000 camp residents have been dispersed across the town in France while they seek asylum. These refugees were waiting to cross the border from France to Great Britain. #jungle #calais #refugees #brexit .
