About Me:I was born in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, in 1981. I started my visual techniques as a Photographer in 2001. I graduated from South Asian Media Academy and Photojournalism (Pathshala). I always want to show a documentation of a culture with my photographs, to tell a story with my photographs with a messenger of the community. My philosophy is that it is essential for the photographer to create communication and trust with his subjects.
I worked as a freelancer in several Daily Newspapers in Bangladesh and International Magazines. My photographs has been published in Sunday Times Magazine, American Photo, National Geographic Society, Better Photography, Saudi Aramco World Magazine, Guardian, Telegraph, The Independent and The New Internationalist.

Photography has the visual power to educate by allowing us to enter the lives and experiences of others. Through photography, I hope to help the society to empathize with hidden social, political and environmentally suffered people. It is important to realize that no documentation will ever be finished. This work informs my identity that has started from one point but has no ending.
