INDIA - BANGLADESH BORDER FENCE, 2008

These images were made In 2008 during a 2500 km journey for Time Magazine along the India – Bangladesh border fence during its 4th year of construction. 

 

Meant to contain external threats to India's security, check the influx of migrants and prevent smuggling, it still remains debatable whether the fence has succeeding in its objectives. Meanwhile it has divided villages, homes and families and restricted the freedoms of residents of the border regions.
