‘Faces of Empowerment’ underway at AFD

A photography exhibition titled ‘Faces of Empowerment’ by photographer GMB Akash has begun at La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the capital’s Dhanmondi area.
Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor was present at the inauguration ceremony as the chief guest on Tuesday, while Ambassador of Denmark to Bangladesh Mikael Hemniti Winther also attended the programme as the special guest.
The guest of honour of the inauguration ceremony was 29-year old Rotna from rural Rajshahi. Rotna endured mental and psychical abuse in the hands of her husband and her in-laws for years. With help from a One-Stop-Crisis Centre at the local public hospital, she managed to escape the violence. Her husband was brought to justice through the One-Stop-Crisis Centre, which is supported by Danida. Today, Rotna owns a beauty parlour in her village and her children attend school.
Faces of Empowerment shows the faces and tells the stories of people who prevailed when life was unliveable. It is stories of injustice, torture and broken families, but it is also stories of salvation, strength and economic empowerment. GMB Akash gives these people a voice. The portraits offer a rare look into the lives and destinies that does not hit the headlines.
The show is open to all till Feb 26.
