When I started this work, I faced many layers of Dhaka. In my work, I tried to erase the rush, chaos, ugliness of the city. I willingly gathered all my subject matters and characters, sometime in shadows, sometime in dark and sometimes even at night.
For this purpose, the known city began unknown to me, and there, I stood as a person who translates my world into the unknown; the words and feelings that I feel but those I captured in my photograph.
It is my ongoing project. I believe the story remains unfinished as I am waiting for the winter day; the day that arrives with fog and dark side of a lost face.
