A Bangladeshi photographer has begun collecting snaps on train surfing in the Asian nation.

G M B Akash told Slate: "When the train starts your feet will shake and you will try to hold something, but there is nothing to hold on to."

He explained how over the course of the project he came across many low-paid workers who had little choice but to ride to their jobs on the top of the trains as they could not afford tickets, while there was no room inside anyway.

Akash also told the news provider he encountered homeless children who rode on the roofs of the train for fun.

The final exhibition from the snaps, which is titled Survivors and is on display at Anastasia Photo, will be running until December 23rd.

Keen photographers may decide to invest in a Pixma MG8250 printer from ink suppliers maker Canon, as the device was recently noted in a review for CNet UK by Niall Magennis as offering high printing speeds.
