Bio

I am a Bangladeshi photographer involved in image making since 2007. My images represent the humans around me, in the well and in woe. My approach to photography is subjective, which allows me to reflect my own views about the world in the photographs.

I am a photographer by passion and  a microbiologist by profession. Recently, I have moved to United States in pursuance of a PhD degree in microbiology. Although I am submerged in science right now, I am documenting the subtle aspects of western lifestyle during the free spells.  My passion in photography sprouted from my interest in the people and their way of interactions with the lives around them.

I have been intimately involved in the photographic mileu of Bangladesh since 2007. I am an administrator of “Bangladeshi Photogrpahers (BP)”, the pioneer online photography base of Bangladesh which currently has more than 4,000 members. Apart from its flickr base, BP is thriving in real life by hosting regular photo exhibitions, workshops and knowledge sharing activities.

Photography provides the food for my soul. However, I am still not sure about the fate of the soul without a body, so I try to sell my images personally and through image agencies to sustain my corporeal self. I have been serving as an independent curator and contributor of Getty Images and am also represented by Corbis Images.

If you want to use any of my images for your commercial projects or want fine art prints, please contact me through this website or send a flickrmail. Alternatively, you can also check my Getty and Corbis pages. A larger body of my works is available in my Flickr portfolio.
