Solo photography exhibition starts at AFD tomorrow

A photography exhibition titled ‘Humans of ICPD: Faces of Bangladesh’ by photographer Naymuzzaman Prince is set to start tomorrow at Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in Dhanmondi of the capital. The exhibition is organised jointly by AFD and UNFPA Bangladesh.

Planning Minister M A Mannan will inaugurate the exhibition as the chief guest on the gallery premises at 5:30pm. UNFPA Bangladesh representative Asa Torkelsson will also attend the opening ceremony as the special guest.

Nairobi Summit 2019 marks 25 years of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) since its first organisation in 1994 in Cairo. As a developing country, Bangladesh has achieved a lot of success in different areas, especially on human rights, population, sexual and reproductive health, gender equality, and sustainable development. United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is playing an important role in achieving those improvements. They are working closely together with different stakeholders where the rights of women and girls are key to development.

This photo exhibition will put a human face to the ICPD agenda in Bangladesh, which is expected to generate momentum ahead of the Nairobi Summit to accelerate the progress of the ICPD agenda. Through powerful portraits and vignettes of people from Bangladesh, the exhibition will not only inform key stakeholders about the ICPD Programme of Action’s principles but also highlight why ICPD is so important if Bangladesh is to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

Naymuzzaman Khan Prince is a social photographer and visual storyteller, based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. His main areas of interest are socio-cultural subjects such as women and women’s rights, culture and identity, worker, health, population and development, environment and climate change, politics and political violence, religion, etc. His work has been featured in national and international publications as well as exhibited in Bangladesh and abroad, both in solo exhibitions and in international festivals.

After the inaugural ceremony, the exhibition will remain open to all at La Galerie of AFD till November 12 and can be visited according to the following schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday (9am to12pm and 5pm to 8pm), and Sunday is closed.
