And now I am addicted to taking pictures. In fact, there is no day in the calendar that my camera does not click the shutter. I prefer to take pictures of the miserable lives of neglected and impoverished people rather than taking pictures of eminent personalities. Besides, I don’t delayed capturing the natural beauty. I run around looking for pictures. I have come so far with the blessings of my father, ignoring all obstacles.
I dedicate all of my smallest success to Dad. Always trying to give the well-wishers some good gifts. I have released an album of photographs titled ‘Shopner Proticchobi‘ at 2017 Book Fair and in 2019 I will release a solo Photo Album titled ‘Shopner Proticchobi-2‘& 2nd solo photo exhibition titled 2021 Bangladesher Proticchobi.
