“You don't take a photograph, you make it.”-- Ansel Adams. Photography can be your companion and teacher for life, but you need to get to know each other and make friends first, just like in any relationship. If you know how your camera, lenses, the light and the subjects work, you will be in control of taking the picture and can develop a much more conscious way of photography. To help our volunteers build up their skills in photography, Volunteer for Bangladesh Dhaka District is organising a one day workshop on photography where you all will get a wonderful chance to learn and practice photography with some of the very best in the industry. It is an opportunity of a life time with Jawad Chowdhury – Managing Director & Chief Photographer at SnapShot, Khondker Nasif Akhter - Managing Director & Chief Photographer at K.Nasif Photography, Prito Reza – CEO, Chief Photographer and Director at Prito Reza Productions.  Registration forms are available at

Self-revelation by Siddhartha Talukder- Painting Exhibition

Date: 10 March, Friday

Time: Daylong

Venue:  La Galerie, Alliance Francaise

Siddhartha Talukder has explored art for a long 40 years. Though he participated in more than a 100 group exhibitions, both national and international, this exhibition titled 'Self-revelation' is his first solo stint. In the past few years, Talukder worked with different colour media like oil, watercolour, acrylic, pastel, and mixed media. His artistic language is abstract and his subjects are mainly nature and human, sometimes non-objective; and convey both traditionalism and modernism. Some of his paintings are painted over a long period of time and encapsulate many layers of musings and creative awareness. As Talukder puts it, “Each diligent artist should leave a sign of their own style even under restriction.” His paintings exude hard work, dedication and introspection.
