The monograph

“Of a Different Stripe”

To outsiders, the region around the Bay of Bengal can best be described as overwhelming. Exotic to even the most experienced traveller it is an assault on the senses: the noise, the smells, the vibrant colours, the seemingly never-ending crowds pushing against you. For many, it can become too much, but the chaos is also what makes it so special and unique. Life in the streets can be felt and seen like nowhere else—so alive and vibrant.

In details

The photographic journey

Max Sturgeon’s pictures try to capture the vividness of life in the Bay of Bengal region, and his images can portray well the richness of colours and convey actions and meanings. Not one of the photos was staged or posed: in a land of countless Gods and languages, the streets are theatre, and the performances one of a kind. Chaotic beauty at its finest.

The photographer’s vision
“I wanted to be close to people so you feel the density of the population and a different take on the Bay of Bengal region. I wanted the viewers to feel what it was truly like to be in India or Bangladesh. To feel the chaos”.
