Born in 1987, Gazipur, Bangladesh.

Currently I am living in Dhaka. After finishing my graduation in Electrical Engineering, currently I am working as a photojournalist in The Daily Star, the leading English Daily in Bangladesh.

I am interested to make photo documentary on people, society and different issues of rural and urban areas of Bangladesh. I have traveled different areas of Bangladesh in search of unknown faces and stories. At present I am practicing of understanding human psychology and the barriers of them to survive in society.

My photos have been exhibited in many national and international group exhibitions. And I have several publications in the major daily newspapers of Bangladesh.

I am also involved with Bangladeshi Photographers (BP) a nonprofit online photographic organization in Bangladesh, where we all professional and amateur photographers are using our photographs as our weapon to break the social barriers and problems to build a beautiful world full of millions of smiling faces.
