Bio

I am a Bangladeshi photographer involved in image making since 2007. My images represent the humans around me, in well and in woe.

I am a photographer by passion and  a microbiologist by profession. Recently, I completed a PhD in Marine Microbial Ecology and currently doing research in the capacity of a Postdoc at Virginia Tech. I am planning to settle down in the USA for a longer term and will continue to pursue my passion in visual story telling as a scientist and a visual artist. My passion in photography sprouted from my interest in the people and their way of interactions with the nature and lives around them.

I have been intimately involved in the photographic milieu of Bangladesh since 2007. I was an administrator of “Bangladeshi Photographers (BP)”, the pioneer online photography base of Bangladesh which at its peak, had more than 4,000 members worldwide. Apart from its Flickr base, BP thrived in real life by hosting regular photo exhibitions, workshops and knowledge sharing activities.

If you have any questions or comments regarding my images, please send me a mail through the contact page. A larger body of my works is available in my Flickr portfolio.
