With the rise of factories, investors, and development, the landscape of Bangladesh is changing. Transitions is a traveling exhibition of new Bangladeshi photography originally curated by the Bangladeshi American Creative Collective. This group show features nine Bangladeshi photographers whose work reflects a diverse group of people, shifting economies, and changing lands. Its aim is to not only to collect and exhibit photography as art, but also as ideas about the country of Bangladesh.
These photos navigate the stories of Bangladesh’s people, landscapes, and its position in the world. The exhibition initiates important discussions around the meaning of changes, shifts, and transitions across generations and communities.
Participating artists include Arfun Ahmed, Taslima Akhter, Debashish Chakrabarty, Rasel Chowdhury, Samsul Alam Helal, Jannatul Mawa, Manir Mrittrik, Saikat Mojumder, and Tapash Paul.
