Photography exhibition ‘Exodus’ begins at AFD

A photography exhibition titled ‘Exodus’ by internationally acclaimed photographer Patrick Brown has begun at La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in Dhanmondi of the capital yesterday.
UNICEF Bangladesh and AFD have jointly organised the exhibition.
UNICEF Bangladesh Goodwill Ambassador and cricket icon Shakib Al Hasan and UNICEF Bangladesh Representative Edouard Beigbeder and Ambassador of France to Bangladesh Marie Annick Bourdin jointly inaugurated the exhibition.
Edouard Beigbeder said, “This exhibition not only portrays the hopelessness and despair of a people in peril, it also captures their unmatched ability to bounce back in life with little support to ensure their basic necessities.”
Shakib Al Hasan said, “We should come forward to solve the problem soon or later”
The exhibition showcases a collection of photographs taken by Patrick Brown during last one year portraying the initial influx, the resilience of the Rohingyas, the host community, emergency mitigation measures and international support to the Rohingya people.
More than a year ago, a startled international community watched a dramatic humanitarian crisis unfold on the north-eastern edge of the Bay of Bengal. In a matter of weeks, hundreds of thousands of desperate and terrorized people — 60 percent of them children — poured across the border from Myanmar into Bangladesh, bringing with them accounts of the unspeakable violence and brutality that had forced them to flee. UNICEF has been on the ground in southern Bangladesh since the onset of the crisis as part of a coalition of national and international agencies.
Patrick Brown is the recipient numerous international awards, including the 3P Photographer Award, World Press Award, Picture of The Year Award, New York Photographic Book Award, to name a few. His works have graced the pages of prestigious publications such as, The New Yorker, TIME, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, National Geographic, and International Herald Tribune.
The exhibition will be open to all till December 22 and can be visited according to the schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday (9am to 12 noon and 5pm to 8pm). Closed -Sunday.
