Documentary photographer Suman Paul’s solo photography exhibition titled ‘In Limbo’ was inaugurated on December 9 at the EMK Center, Dhanmondi. Internationally acclaimed photographer Abir Abdullah and Director of the EMK Center M K Aaref were present during the inauguration of the exhibition.

 

The exhibition titled “In Limbo” features photographs of the Rohingyas and their stories of persecution, which is one of the biggest tragedies of the 21st century. The exhibition will continue till December 21.

 

Suman Paul hopes his work will shed light on the plight of the Rohingyas, who are literally caught in limbo and a question of their future will arise among the Dhaka audiences.

 

Suman Paul is a documentary photographer who started the photography as a hobby but gradually became enthusiastic about documenting human lifestyle in and around his birth place, Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. He completed his graduation in photography from Pathshala, South Asian Media Institute, and in due course, he has done documentaries on Autism, on mental patients and a physically disabled person (a paralympic player in Egypt).

 

Suman started documenting lifestyle of fishermen, focusing on hunting of sharks. He worked on the moments and the lives of the peope of the ‘ghats’ of Buriganga. He also worked on Sufi Dance in Al Tanoura Troupe in Cairo, Egypt in 2013. Now his ongoing interest is in Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.
