Meet Henry Rollins.
Rollins, frontman for both Black Flag and Rollins Band, has been traveling the world for more than a quarter century. In recent years, he has decided to document his travels, which have taken him to countries such as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iran, and North Korea to name a few. His first photo book, Occupants, has just been published last fall.
Rollins wrote some captions for each pictures but since it’s not possible to do in a photoset, I’ll post them below.
#1 “She and her parents were picking through a massive pile of garbage in the Karail slum in Dhaka (Bangladesh). The parents didn’t seem to notice me, but she did and smiled as I took the photo.”
#2 “I was in the Karail slum (Dhaka, Bangladesh) and saw this group of men cutting the needles off syringes. I asked them if they were being very careful, the potential for spread of disease being very real. The man on the right spoke English and told me they were being careful. He then proceeded to take a syringe and pretend to stab his friend with it. I don’t know what they were going to do with all the syringes. If you look carefully, the needles are all over the ground.”
