Photography has always been a great source of inspiration which helps me to develop a certain point of view about life and reality.
I take photos mostly in Dhaka. Urban realities, the cacophony, and the split moments which vanish in milliseconds attract me like nothing else. Hence, I try to bring out layers, colours, candidness, and mostly 'life' in my photos.
Filmmaker Satyajit Roy has been the greatest inspiration for me since he understood and portrayed Bangali life like no one else. To name a few, I am deeply influenced by the works of Anwar Hossain, Raghubir Singh, Raghu Rai, Alex Webb, and many other photographers around the globe.
These photos are from one of my photo series titled 'Tranquillity In Chaos'. The series comprises images taken from 2016 to 2021 in Dhaka. In this series, each image has its own narrative which synchronises with a variety of emotions.
The city life is mostly based on chaos but I tried to find all the split images that contain a sense of tranquillity in it. I see city life as an urban maze where everyone is trying to find their own way towards peace amidst all the despondent stories.
