Thousands of fish are painstakingly washed and sorted before being left to dry in the sun. The images we taken in the Brahmanbaria District of Bangladesh.

The small fish, locally called ‘puti’, are collected from the nearby river then cut and left to dry in the sun before being packaged and distributed across the country.

Photographer joy Saha, 25, said, “Around 15,000 fish are dried at a time. The drying process takes 4-5 days depending on how warm the weather is. They are sold for around £5 per kg.”

“Dry Fish selling is a major industry. Bangladesh exports a huge quantity of dry fish every year, greatly contributing to the economy.”
