Villagers go about their daily lives despite devastating flooding after a river burst its banks.  Residents aren't deterred by the chest-deep water and continue to hang out their washing, lead cattle, and fetch drinking water.<br />
<br />
These villagers in Sariakandi, on the outskirts of Bogra, Bangladesh, have been affected by flood water which comes from a nearby river and is 30ft-deep in the worst areas.  Photographer Abdul Momin said the flooding happens every year during monsoon season, causing residents in 15 districts of Bangladesh to abandon their homes and move to higher ground.
