Many people are living in cramped, dangerous buildings and slums across the capital of Bangladesh. Although Dhaka is the 72nd most expensive city in the world (according to the Economist Intelligence Unit's (EIU) Worldwide Cost of Living 2018 index), the living conditions of many people in the city are barely humane.

The photos were taken by Dhaka Tribune’s chief photographer Syed Zakir Hossain.
