Photo by @sarahyltonphoto | Young boys pose for a portrait along the Meghna River in Bhola District, Bangladesh, one of the three major tributaries of the Ganges Delta. I made this photograph during National Geographic's female-led Sea to Source expedition, in which researchers traveled from the Bay of Bengal up to the Himalaya, in order to better understand how plastic moves through waterways and eventually into our oceans.
