Joy Bangabandhu: Photography Exhibition by Nasir Ali Mamun
Date: Friday, 6 March, 2020 to Friday, 20 March, 2020
Venue: La Galerie, Alliance Francaise
Just after the liberation war in 1971 Nasir Ali Mamun's camera defined portraiture in Bangladesh that eventually ushered in portrait photography in the country. Being 'the poet with the camera', Mamun has taken some of the most iconic portraits Bangladesh has ever seen. His black and white images display a beautiful yet enigmatic and equivocal coalescence of light and shadow.
Mamun took many portraits of the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in the early seventies and recorded his rare moments from close up. Dedicated to the freedom fighters of Bangladesh, this solo exhibition titled 'Joy Bangabandhu' will showcase previously unpublished and historic photographs of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and will celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of the 'Father of the Nation'.
