The girl in this picture was the helping hand of my colleague and friend Arnob Chakrabarty in his new home in Dhaka. In October 2010 she had just arrived from the countryside of Bangladesh with her husband. They live in the vast slums of this city.
This is her first job as a maid. She was very curious about me and my things and started rummaging in my bag, took out some clothes, books and my case with pens, pencils and make up. We took pictures of each other. She is wearing my earrings and lipstick.
