Two books on photography by Hridoy Anirban, a young Bangladeshi photographer, were unveiled recently. Bangladesh Photographers' Association's former President Akkas Mahmud and renowned photographer David Barikder were at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The books are "Missing the Beat" and "Life Enduring During Pandemic".
"Missing the Beat" is full of black and white photographs captured on the vivid life of street singers in New York. Akkas Mahmud said, "This is undoubtedly a courageous and challenging attempt for a young photographer. I was amazed by his work."
David Barikder said about the photos taken during the pandemic in New York that when people remained stuck in their homes, Hrodoy Anirban was busy capturing all of their despairs and struggles to survive. "This professional attitude of a young photographer is certainly something to be followed by others," he said.
Hridoy Anirban recently completed his graduation in Photography from New York City University. The aforementioned books were exhibited in the southen city Khulna apart from Dhaka – the capital city of Bangladesh.
