Hello, I am Adnan, 25, from the city of Chittagong in Bangladesh. I am a doctor by profession and a photographer out of passion.
Things he enjoy about Street photography:
The people and how interact with each other, and also how light plays its part on the streets.
Living in a Place where life seemed too difficult, Did it Helped?
Yes and No. I think there are more stories on the streets here, waiting to be told. But then again, the last thing I want is to make the people on the street feel exploited that I’m using their photographs to earn fame.
According to him for a good photograph what is more important concept or technical aspects:
I’m not a trained photographer so technicalities come second to the story or the concept behind the photograph.
His Favorite series so far:
I am not sure if I have a ‘favorite’ series as such, but I like how I completed the ‘100 strangers’ project which featured people from a lot of nations and religions.
Being a Doctor How he finds time for photography:
I believe if you have passion for something, you will find a way to pursue it. I try to carry my camera everywhere.
His Future expectation for his photography Career:
I’d really like to work on a couple of solid bodies of work to present them to the audience in the next couple of years. One of my major disappointments have been the fact that I haven’t found something truly special in terms of a single body of work.
Photographer he truly admire and see as an alter ego:
I have said this time and again, but I’ll say it again, my favorite photographer and photography Godfather has been Nayeem Kalam. Apart from him. I’m a fan of James Nachtway, Steve McCurry, Maciej Dackowicz, Abir Abdullah and M.R Hasan.
